First edition. Jane de la Vaudère was the pen name of Jeanne Scrive; she was a prolific author of exotic and decadent novels and short stories, such as Les Androgynes (1903), Les Demi-Sexes (1897), and Les Sataniques (1897). La Cité des sourires, a rather salacious piece japonisant fantasy, illustrated by Raphael Kirchner, is very scarce indeed.
