The first English language edition of Picasso’s play. Gertrude Stein told him he should stick to painting (which he did, and stayed great friends with her). This copy bound as most French bibliophile books are, in ?hand-tooled leather. The cover has incised blue line drawing of anthropomorphic horse and dove, the back cover with ‘reverse embossing’ red leather horse-figure with raised wings. Unable to ascertain the maker (an inability reflected in the price), but there were at the time several French artisans who could produce such. Front page signed by Picasso with thick blue magic marker over the whole page, and dated ‘ a grave 17.2.65’ followed by an underlining scrawl in the spirit of the aforementioned raised wings. Mirrored offsetting (i.e., Picasso signature x 2) on previous page as usual with magic-marker. N° de réf. du libraire 213
