Description du livre Touchstone, New York, 1966. First and only edition. A set of ten aquatint color etchings by French artist Brigitte Coudrain (1934-), this being number 34 of 100 copies printed by the Atelier George Leblanc in Paris for Touchstone. The etchings are printed on superb hand-made paper folded in leaves, with etched titles on the uppermost leaf, and the aquatints, each signed in the lower right margin, on the folded leaf following. All of the interleaved tissue guards are present. The sheets measure approximately 16" by 11" folded; the size of the etchings vary, but measure roughly 3" x 3". The etchings and the colophon are housed in a tape-tied, cloth-covered portfolio (17" x 12 1/4") with what seem to be two tiny nicks in the cloth and light rubbing on the spine-ends and corners. A publicity leaf for Coudrieu, as well as four other artists -- Jean Miro, Thomas Cornell, Alexander Calder and Nobumitsu Fukui -- are laid in. Fine. N° de réf. du libraire 6929
