Number 4 of 10 de luxe copies (total edition 50), quarto size, [16] pp., signed by Judith Rothchild with an additional print also signed, in French. A single poem, "L'Invitation au Voyage" is from the collection Les Fleurs du mal, first published in 1857, penned by Charles Pierre Baudelaire (1821-1867), the French poet credited with influencing a whole generation of symbolist and modernist poets. "Les Fleurs du mal" deals with the changing landscape of Paris during the industrial revolution; his longing for the Paris of yore frames a retreat into an exotic fantasy world with his desire to make beauty from darkness. In the poem he invites his mistress to dream with him of a more sublime and tranquil, natural world where they can live together. This piece lacks the exotic and often grotesque imagery so often associated with Les Fleurs du mal; instead, Judith Rothchild's mezzotints illustrate the idyllic landscape dream world of the poem, darkly obscuring it into small windows, as if snipped from the imagination of the poet's mistress, who struggles to dream of the prescribed world as so loftily presented by the enigmatic Baudelaire. ___DESCRIPTION: Loose concertina housed in stiff wrapper sirigraphed in shades of blue designed to resemble Moorish tile with title lettered in black to a dark-blue backstrip, rough-cut edges, title page with a single, small, circular mezzotint, text in French, eight additional mezzotints throughout the poem; Hahnemuhle paper, quarto size (10.5" by 10.25"), unpaginated with [16] pp., limited edition, this number 4 of 10 de luxe copies, from a total edition of 50, signed by Judith Rothchild. With one additional mezzotint numbered and signed by the artist in pencil, with a poem by Baudelaire hand-written by Rothchild in French on the leaf surrounding the mezzotint, encased in its own paper sleeve. Both are housed in a matching blue fall-down-back case. ___CONDITION: Fine; crisp, clean, as new and free of prior owner markings; in a like case. The mezzotints are lush and deep, and must be experienced in person to gain a full appreciation. ___POSTAGE: International customers, please note that additional postage may apply as the standard does not always cover costs; please inquire for details. ___Swan's Fine Books is pleased to be a member of the ABAA, ILAB and IOBA and we stand behind every book we sell.
