LOUIS ICART (1888 - 1950) / Louis Icart Artist Books
Selected Works by Pierre Louys

Dimensions (Height Width Length): 10.00 in 4.00 in 8.00 in
Original cased, five volume Livres d'Artist. Edition size for this illustrated book set is 1500 examples on Velin, with this being numbered 1498. Titles of these hand colored books are Aphrodite, Les Chansons De Bilitis, La Femme Et Le Pantin, Les Aventures Du Roi Pausole, and Poemes. Within the Chansons De Bilitis, there are 22 original illustrations by Icart that were hand-colored by Albert Jon, with plate sizes of 7 1/4" X 9 1/4". Very rare to find this set complete with the original case, and aside from the case having a bit of separation and a bumped corner, and that there is a missing outer tissue for the volume entitled Aphrodite, I would say it is in excellent overall condition.
