ELUARD, Paul Corps Mémorable. Paris: Pierre Seghers, 1948.

Small 8vo., original publisher's paper wrappers printed in green and black, together with later added glassine wrapper; pp. [viii], 9-28, [vi]; inscribed by the author to the half-title; very light and unobtrusive sunning to spine, internally fine.
A fine association copy of the second edition, inscribed by Eluard to the celebrated publisher Albert Skira: in a late hand "á mon ami Albert", with his distinctive signature.
Published a year after the first, the second edition comprises only sixty copies and includes seven previously unpublished poems of mourning for the poet's wife Nusch, who died in 1947. Skira was the publisher, in a long and distinguished career, of Minotaure magazine, a Surrealist magazine which ran from 1933 to 1939.
