Éloge de la plaquette.

Les Plaquettes, Paris, 1939

CHF 320.–

In its 16-year history, the Société de Bibliophiles Les Plaquettes has published only two works. This one was published in 1939, the other in 1943. Both were printed in small numbers. The ‘Éloge de la plaquette’ print was produced in a limited run of 111 copies, with the current copy being no. XLI.

Description: Sewn as issued in original printed wrappers and original glassine jacket. Quarto: 31 × 21 cm; [14] ll. (unpaginated). Printed from 16 pt Astrée on hand-made paper, edges uncut.

Enclosed: Original envelope with the address of the recipient of this print.

Provenance: Personal copy of Count E. da Silva Ramos (presumably father of racing driver Hernando ‘Nano’ da Silva Ramos).

Condition: A few pages with a small spot of paper browning. Otherwise an excellent copy.

Notes: Fernand Fleuret’s essay discusses the historical importance of pamphlets (plaquettes) in printed literature, especially French literature. The present edition was masterfully typeset at the Presses de l’Hôtel de Sagonne and elaborately printed by hand. In the colophon, for example, the number of copies and the name of the addressee were exchanged in the printing form before each printing.
