[Paris]: Se trouve chez 'Auteur, 1922. Thick 12mo (18 x 13 cm). Printed boards. Fragile boards darkened and a bit rubbed, narrow external cracks to joints, 1929 gift inscription, but a good, internally very good copy of a book seldom seen better. Marbled board slipcase. First edition in English, US issue. One of 600 numbered copies, signed by the author/artist, for distribution in North America. Foreword by Romain Rolland (in English). First published in Switzerland in 1919, this work is also referred to under the later alternate title, PASSIONATE JOURNEY. It is Masereel's most extended exercise in the medium he pioneered and others, including Lynd Ward, adopted - the wordless woodcut novel. As a progenitor of today's graphic novel, his work is of renewed significance. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76768)
