A very unusual one for me but it has the Losfeld connection, the bibliographical description is courtesy of Patrick Kearney’s, Scissors and Paste site, and without wishing to take issue with his description, there are (in my copy at least) 7 illustrations, one is repeated twice “Le dialectique du Maitre et de l’Esclave“, also if you count the “Fin” that makes 8 illustrations. The book was published originally published clandestinely during the war, and again clandestinely in 1955 by Losfeld.

[ Dutel, 1676.] With the exception of the wrappers, a facsimile reprint of the original edition of this surrealist work, first published secretly in 1943 by Robert J. Godet. The majority of the print run was seized by the Gestapo in 1944

Another of my late clandestine titles, previously listed in brief, but here with all the illustrations.
This title is available for trade against my Paris Olympia Press Wants.
NOTE: The illustrations are on glossy paper in the book itself, and are none to clear to the eye, I have scanned and darkened the images, in the hope of making them more visible on the the screen, the results are mixed. I hope you enjoy them.
