The Proofs for _Po emes_

Poèmes, 1948



Author André Breton


In 1948, Gallimard published an anthology of Breton's poems, under a title somewhat Mallarméan in its proud simplicity: Poèmes. We have here the proofs corrected in Breton's hand; they contain only a few minor interventions.

272 pages in-8° of corrected proofs, with annotations for the printer, of the edition of Poèmes published in 1948.

The manuscript of the prière d'insérer [publicity notice] for Poèmes.
