44 pp. play in seven acts by Deauville in response to the failed attempt at establishing an independent Catalan Republic in 1926 and the subsequent exile of many Spaniards to Brussels, including illustrator Helios Gómez. Illustrated with 8 graphic black-and-white plates after woodcuts by Gómez, signed within the plates. Large 4to. Orig. color illustrated wrpps. Some very minor soiling to covers. Brussels (Editions L'Equerre) 1928. Signed by author to title page. Limited edition of 200 copies. Max Deauville was a French-language author and member of the Belgian literary avant-garde. Helios Gómez was an important Spanish graphic artist, painter, revolutionary, anarchist-communist, and poet. His politically charged avant-garde black-and-white works were highly appreciated early in his career, prior to his exile from Spain in 1926 for his political views and activity. He returned to Spain in 1930 and was subsequently arrested multiple times for his involvement in and affiliation with Republican politics as both an artist and a politician. He was finally imprisoned in Barcelona for sedition in 1948 and was held until 1954. Very scarce; as of September 2016, WorldCat locates only one holding of this edition in North America.
