De la Tradition et de l'Indépendance

Dominique, Jean (Pseud. of Marie Closset)

(Brussels?). Edition de la 'Libre Esthétique'. 1903, 17 mars
A good, unsophisticated copy of this scarce text for the 1903 Salon de la Libre Esthétique.

From the edition limited to 100 numbered copies on Hollande Van Gelder printed 'pour les Membres Protecteurs de la Libre Esthétique'.

Jean Dominique was the pseudonym of Belgian poet Marie Closset (1873 - 1952) who wrote under a male nom de plume to ensure an unbiased approach to her work. Given her psudonymous writing, one wonders how she might have given this lecture in person.
[12 leaves; pp. (i), 21]. 12mo. (190 x 137 mm). Leaf with justification verso, leaf with explanatory text, title and Dominique's text dedicated to A. M. Léon Guinotte. Original publisher's printed paper wrappers with Yapp edges, stitched as issued, titles and vignette in black to front cover.
