Innendeckel auf dem Buch-Schildchen der Galerie Paul Rosenberg). - "Of all the illustrated books the one which gives most exactly the flavour of her work is probably Les Petits Filles de Marie Laurencin, a series of seventeen watercolors of young girls most faithfully reproduced which was published by Paul Rosenberg in the early days of her relationship with the gallery. The plates are so precisely like watercolors that the temptation to detach them from the book is hard to resist, the more so as the book is without text, and it is now rare to find a copy intact" (Gere). - Außengelenke geringfüg. lädiert.17 color lithogr. plates (after watercolors) by M. Laurencin. Orig. card boards in orig. slipcase.
