Neuilly-sur-Seine: Le Phare de Neuilly, 1933. First edition. 8vo, photographically illustrated wraps by Man Ray. Profusely illustrated.
The debut issue (of four numbers published, the last a double number) of one of the most beautiful and unusual of all Surrealist periodicals. This is the second state, with the Daumal contribution replaced with "Miss Hazel" by Petrus-Borel. With contributions from Lêon-Paul Fargue, Jacques Baron, Robert Desnos, André de Richaud, Jules Supervielle, René Laforgue, Georgette Camille, Jean Painlevé, Céline Arnaud, Nicole Cazanave, Roger Vitrac, Jean Follain, Alejo Carpentier, and G. Ribemont-Dessaignes. It also includes photographs within by Man Ray, Nadal, and Lee Miller.
Wraps rather creased and rubbed, with some tears along the spine, and soiling and some very faint waviness to back cover, a good only example but complete and sound. Item #30734
