Alcools, suivi de Vitam Impendere Amori (2 books in one)

Lausanne: Mermod, 1950. Limited edition. Paperback. 1/1200. 12mo. 182, [4]pp. Uncut. Original glassine over illustrated wrappers. Frontispiece. Originally published in 1913, "Alcools" is a collection of poems by French author Guillaume Apollinaire. In addition to its technical innovations, this work contains what many critics regard as his most successful individual poems, "Zone" and "La chanson du mal-aime" (Song of the Ill-Beloved), which, with their hope and excitement in modernity, their erudite literary references, and their poignant expressions of disappointed love, embody the full range and complexity of Apollinaire's poetic vision. Along with "Alcools" is "Vitam Impendere Amori" (To Spend Life on Love), a small book of six poems which the poet originally published in 1917. Includes illustrations in b/w by Pablo Picasso. One of 1,200 copies, of which this is No. 131. Glassine chipped and partly torn. Spine creased and slightly cocked. Minor shelf wear. Covers slightly soiled and sunned along edges. Text in French.
