Item #2234 Études et Préludes. Vivien, enée.

Études et Préludes

Paris: Alphonse Lemerre, 1901. First edition. [6], 157, [3] p. Original paper wrappers. Spine reinforced with old tape, cover edges chipped and rubbed; a good copy of a very rare book, particularly in the original wrappers. Renée Vivien's first book, dedicated to N..... [Natalie Clifford Barney], who was its primary inspiration. The initial "R" of the first name left some room for ambiguity about the sex of the author, and it was not until 1903 with the publication of the Sapho collection that Vivien signed with her full (pseudonymous) name. OCLC locates four copies in the US, at least one of which has been rebound. Item #2234
