[ARAGON, Louis] ANONYMOUS

Irène

Paris: Chez L'Auteur [Jean-Jacques Pauvert], 1952

8vo, pp. 108. Variant binding: blue stiff paper wrappers, white title label on front panel. Fifth (blank) leaf missing, as in all copies. French text. A fine, unopened copy.

Second authorised edition: the first edition was published by Rene Bonnel in 1928 with the title Le Con d'Irène [Irene's Cunt], and a piracy appeared in 1948.
This edition included 100 copies printed on Verge d'Archès, and bearing the original title. According to Patrick Kearney, most ordinary copies of this edition were issued in cream wrappers with the title printed in red on the front panel, but a few (like this copy) were issued in blue wrappers, thought to have been added by the printer.
A beautiful copy.
