Deja Jadis: ou Du Mouvement Dada A L'Espace Abstrait. [Association Copy].

Paris: Juilliard, 1958. First Printing. Original Wraps. Germaine Everling Picabia's copy, with long holographic note in French on the first blank which gives a devastating and beautiful portrait of the author, her fellow Dadaist G. Ribemont-Dessaignes. "Dada attracted him by the possibility he saw to express his rancor...he was perhaps the most sincerely revolutionary of the Dadaists. Multiple disappointments spoiled his childish and charming nature and gave him an acidity of mind that gnawed him. Of a fragile constitution, he would arrive at Emile Augier (sp?) street shivering aloud from sentimental complications. One day G. de Zayes asked him what he thought of love, and he replied 'Ah, it is more tiring to think of than to do.' We called him the Dada angel." Very Good+ in Wraps. Very minor shelf/edge wear, long notation at ffep, minor notation at half-title, some discrete underlining/marginalia in first few signature, light toning at page edges, else tight and clean. Original printed wraps. 8vo. 300pp. Item #6553
