Louis Icart
French (1890 - 1950)

La Nuit et Le Moment - 1949

La Nuit et Le Moment, written by Jean de la Fontaine with illustrations by Louis Icart, consists of 25 color etchings plus text. The book was published in 1946 with a total edition of 540.

Show below is the special edition of the book, #14, which contains one original watercolor drawing, one copper plate, 25 color etchings with text, one set of the etchings in sepia, and one set of the etchings in b/w. The paper is Japon Imperial.

The book has gold gilding for the flowers and title on the spine, and also the head. This is a fine example of bookbinding.

Note, that none of the etchings are signed. Icart did not, as a rule, sign his bookplate etchings. If these etchings were signed, the signatures would likely be a facsimile. A Certificate of Authenticity is also provided.
