Les Confidences de Youki
Paris, Fayard, (1957). Memoir of Youki Desnos, muse and partner of the French surrealist poet Robert Desnos in the 1940s and, earlier, Japanese artist Tsugouharu Foujita, who was one of the toasts of Paris in the 1920s. The memoir has illustrations by both. With a lengthy inscription by the author to Peter Matthiessen ("de la part de Patsy" -- on behalf of his then-wife Patsy Southgate), with a drawing of a female, presumably Patsy, and presumably by the author. Moderate foxing; very good in wrappers. [#032465] SOLD
