Album Aragon - Gallimard NRF - 1997.

This 36th album of the Pléiade is dedicated to the poet Louis Aragon.
He was, together with André Breton, Tristan Tzara, Paul Éluard and Philippe Soupault, one of the driving forces behind Parisian Dadaism and Surrealism. After his break with Surrealism in 1931, he became fully involved in the French Communist Party.
Many of his poems were set to music and sung by Léo Ferré or Jean Ferrat, helping to bring his poetic work to the attention of a wide audience.
With Elsa Triolet, he formed one of the most emblematic couples of 20th century French literature.

Extensive iconography selected and commented on by Jean Ristat.
517 illustrations in black and 110 in colour.
Layout by Isabelle Flamigni.

Full leather binding, gilded with fine gold, by Babouot.
With slipcase and protective rhodoid. The slipcase is lightly dented on the back (see photo).
Book in excellent condition.
