(Reserved): BRETON, Andre. Manifeste du Surrealisme: Poisson Soluble.

(Paris): Aux Editions du Sagittaire, chez Simon Kra,. 1924.  First edition.  Octavo.  190 pages.  The first printing of this text that defined “once and for all” the Surrealists’ credo.  A theory of ambition; one which reconciles – from a Freudian background – literature and life, through a new type of language, stimulated by dreams, imagination, insanity, chance, license, or fear. This is a very good copy in orange printed wrappers with small chip to spine head.  This example inscribed to M.J. de Meester, one of those appointed with safeguarding French culture in Holland after the start of the war.  This example additionally with the bookplate of Guido van Suchtelen the face and secretary of Het Spinozahuis.  A nice copy of this important work.
