Bertini, Gianni. Benoit, Pierre-André

Alès. P[ierre]. A[ndré]. B[enoit]. 1960
The édition de tête of Bertini's collaboration with PAB with the additional suite.

From the edition limited to 50 copies signed by Bertini and PAB in pencil, with this one of ten édition de tête copies numbered in Roman numerals with a separate suite of the prints with colour; the prints in the 40 normal copies were printed without ink.

The second engraving of the additional suite retains its conjoined blank. This is annotated in pencil (by PAB?): 'II = 2 / X'; this copy of the book is numbered 'II / X' so it is likely that the annotation refers to this detail.

[Montpellier 361].
[8 bifolia + 5 inserted leaves]. Small folio. (332 x 264 mm). Bifolium with title to first recto, following leaf with first engraving without colour, 4 following bifolia with PAB's verse to first leaf of each recto and verso, each conjoined leaf with engravings without colour, final bifolium with justification to first leaf recto; also included is the additional suite of five engravings printed in colour on single sheets. Original publisher's printed wrappers, titles to front cover in black.
