Catalogue Note

FIRST EDITION, PRESENTATION COPY, inscribed by Apollinaire to Monsieur Serpeille, but not signed.

Much of the text was written in 1914 but publication was delayed due to Apollinaire's head injury in the trenches and subsequent trepanation. The episode is graphically illustrated on the cover and frontispiece.
