LAMBOTTE, Emma. Eloge des Fleurs / Le Soir Descend / Ballade de la Reine Astrid.
(Antwerp): Aux Editions Jo Redig, 1948. First edition. 12mo. Three volumes. 77, 87 and 85 pages. Very nice collection of poetry from Lambotte, who was keen to throw off the constraints placed on women in her time. The partner in crime of artist James Ensor she bought many of his more controversial works, and wrote many enthusiastic reviews of his work in magazines and newspapers helping to establish his reputation. The three volumes here published in limited editions of 500 uniformly numbered copies. Very good copies in card covers with paper jackets, all volumes housed in an additional printed out wrapper. Rare, Worldcat locates only two copies, none outside of Antwerp.
