Paris. Cercle des Experts Comptables et Comptables Agréés, 1966. Grand in-4. 155pp. A lavishly illustrated large format edition of Apollinaire's 'Bestiaire' with 33 wood engravings by Tavy Notton, with a double page illustration as second-title, 8 further double page spreads and 22 fine full page engravings. Each of the double page illustrations carries an additional toned design on the blank first side. Collation of the printings of this work is complicated, but it would appear that the original edition of 1962, published in an edition of 200 copies at the artist's expense, impressed the publishers ' Les Heures Claires' sufficiently for them to return to the printers, Daragnès at Montmartre, and commission a further 375 copies which were subscribed in part by the 'Cercle des Experts Comptables' and in part by the 'Bibliophiles de la Basoche' - or it may be that the Cercle des Experts Comptables' commissioned the re-issue themselves. Whatever the story behind the printings, this issue is comparable to the original in quality of both paper (velin d'arches) and print, with the engravings being produced on the press of Manuel Robbe in Paris. Our copy is no. 256 of the second isssue, and is in excellent condition - unbound, as issued, in the original printed wraps, card sleeve and matching slipcase.
