Acéphale Nos 3/4.

Paris: Acéphale, 1937. 8vo, 32 [2] pp, saddle-stapled in wraps.

A double number of the periodical, which ran to 5 numbers. Acéphale was the public review of the secret society of the same name, Each issue of Acéphale was illustrated on the cover with André Masson's drawing of a headless figure, inspired by Leonardo Da Vinci's drawing Vitruvian Man. The removal of the head was in part a reference to the decapitation of Louis XVI, an event which the Acéphale group celebrated in a ritual manner.

This double issue was dedicated in part to Dionysus, and includes texts by Jules Monnerot, Bataille's series of texts Chronique Nietzscheenne, Roger Caillois, the "Declaration Relative a la Fondation d'Un 'College de Sociologie," Pierre Klossowski's "Don Juan Selon Kierkegaard," and drawings by André Masson.
