Jules Romains / Albert Dubout - Knock ou Le Triomphe de la Médecine. Comédie en trois actes - 1953

A lovely edition, illustrated by the very inspired Dubout, of the play by Jules Romains first performed in Paris, at the Comédie des Champs-Élysées, on 15 December 1923.
It contains 36 in and out of text drawings in colour (coloured under the direction of the artist by Maison Jon et Wils). The cover is also illustrated.
Lovely, colourful and humorous illustrations by Dubout.

Print run limited to 2000 copies. One of the numbered copies on white vellum, this is No. 583.

In leaves, under an illustrated cover in colour with flaps and double casing (folder and slipcase).

A well preserved copy. Fresh inside, lightly aged binding, impeccable inside, devoid of foxing. A handwritten ex dono on the front flyleaf. The double casing is rubbed, the joints and edges are cracked but not detrimental to the hold. In good condition.

A gritty comedy, Knock denounces manipulation, be it in medicine or in any ideology, as in any business.
