Description: (SURREALISM.) Ernst, Max and Eluard, Paul. Répétitions. Dessins de Max Ernst. Color frontispiece and 9 black and white illustrations by Ernst. 8vo, original dark pink wrappers with pictorial onlay to front cover, backstrip lightly faded with wrinkles and bump near head, small blemish to front cover; interior fine. Paris: Au Sans Pareil, 1922

Notes: number 147 of a limited edition of 350 copies. A superbly preserved example of a fragile book prone to textblock and backstrip separation due to the heavy coated paper used. "In 1922 Max Ernst and Paul Eluard jointly published Répétitions, a series of poems, some of which are accompanied by collages. In the unusual nature of their collaboration they hoped to unite not only their conscious but also their subconscious minds" (Hubert, Surrealism and the Book, 1988, page 55).
