Description: MATTA, ROBERTO SEBASTIÁN; and FARDOULIS-LAGRANGE, MICHEL. Les Voix. 10 color etchings by Matta, with an extra suite printed on Auvergne paper, each signed and numbered 24/24 by matta, 325x252 mm; 12 7/8x9 7/8 inches, sheets, full margins. Folio, contents loose as issued in wrappers; black cloth chemise and slipcase. Printed by Georges Visat. Kornfeld and Klipstein 119; Sabatier 113-123. Paris: Le Pont Cardinal, 
number 36 signed by matta and lagrange from a total edition of 125. The suite is possibly misnumbered or mismatched with the volume: the colophon states that Numbers 1-12 contained a double suite on Japan Imperial paper, numbers 13-24 had a suite of 6 plates on the same paper, and then 25-36 contained a suite of 10 plates on Auvergne paper. As this copy is number 36, the set should have been numbered 36 as well.
