        number 142 of 200 copies on specially watermarked van Gelder Holland from a total edition of 250. "Like Bonnard's earlier lithographs for Parallelement and Manet's Le Corbeau, these subtle plates had little appeal in 1902 for a public that preferred the sharply defined realism of the professional engraver. The edition of two hundred fifty was not exhausted for twenty years. Nevertheless, the book is today considered one of the finest of its period"--The Artist & the Book 28; Carteret 4:242; Ray, French 384.
