[ed. MONNIER, Adrienne and PREVOST, Jean]

Le Navire D'Argent

Paris: La Maison des Amis des Livres, 1925

8vo, pp. 127. Original printed stiff paper wrappers, lettered in black to panels and spine. Uncut, partly unopened. French text. Some general age-toning, wrappers a little spotted and with an unobtrusive 4mm nick to front panel, but a very well preserved, tightly bound copy with an unbroken spine.

First edition.

First issue of the literary magazine founded by Adrienne Monnier, which appeared monthly from June 1925 to May 1926. This issue contains T.S. Eliot's Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock, translated into French by Monnier and her business and life partner, Sylvia Beach. Homme Buvant is by Monnier herself, writing under the pseudonym 'J.M. Sollier'.

A lovely copy of the first issue, in its original state.
