Misc 4: Montherlant Mystery
Probably not a mystery I guess to those in the know, it's just that I'm not in the know on this one. These are three images from ebay years ago now when I saw this book, La Ville dont le Prince est Enfant by Henri Montherlant, for sale. I don't remember how much it went for but it was far more than I could afford at the time. I remember being entranced by these and other photos of the illustrations in the book. The only evidence I have for the name of the illustrator being Henri Renaud is that I included that name in the folder which contains the photos on my computer. Otherwise I can find no other copy for sale and no reference to this edition on the Internet.
