Lipchitz, Jacques. DANSEUSE ET COQ. Etching and aquatint, c. 1947. Edition of 50 (this Numbered 49/50) which accompanied the the first 50 copies of the book "Jacques Lipchitz" by Maurice Reynal, published in Paris by Editions Jeanne Boucher in 1947 (4to, glassine covered wraps, 16pp. text and about 60 plates picturing sculptures). The etching is 6 3/4 x 5 3/8 inches, 172 x 137 mm. (sheet 9 x 12 inches). The total edition of the book was 950 copies; numbers 1-50 were accompanied by this etching, which is loosely laid-in, and the book is also numbered "49" and signed by Lipschitz (there were also five copies A-E, which were hors commerce). As this etching appears on the market periodically without the book, it is likely that many, if not most copies have been separated from the book, so that the book with the etching laid in is rare. The etching is in Excellent condition, and the book is Very Good, with some browning to the wraps and some losses to the glassine.
