New York: Harcourt Brace, 1956. First US edition. Hardcover. First. hardcover edition. Small folio. Pictorial paper boards. With 28 original lithographs, 16 of which are in color and 105 additional b/w heliogravures of Chagall's etchings throughout.
This is the first American printing of this incredible book which first appeared as a double issue of Verve (Vol VII, Nos. 33-34). It was produced under the direction of Teriade by the Master Printers Draeger Freres (for the heliogravure in black) and by Mourlot Freres (for the lithography in black and in color).
Expertly and nearly invisibly rebacked with the original spine retained, light wear to corners and edges, previous owner's name and address stamped on the title page, else this is a very good copy.
