Illustrated with two sets of 12 etchings hors texte, an etched illustrated table, and two additional wood-engravings on covers, all by Picasso. Bound in brown morocco, preserved in brown morocco backed chemise in matching slipcase with gilded lettering.

Copy number 1 of the edition and therefore part of the “édition de tête” which was printed on Imperial Japan paper with an extra suite of the etchings printed on Rives wove. As this is from the first part of the edition, and signed by Picasso,  it is significant to note as copies numbered 66 to 305 and those lettered I - XXXV,  were not signed by Picasso.
