Lot Details
HUYSMANS MEMORIAL
Printed memorial prayer sheet for the repose of the soul of J.K. Huysmans, man of letters, edged in black and printed with a photograph of the deceased: 'Souvenez-vous devant Dieu/ [photograph]/ de J.K. Huysmans homme de lettres/ Pieusement décédé à Paris/ le 12 Mai 1907... Requiem aeternam dona ei Domine, et lux perpetua luceat ei. Requiescat in pace. Amen', with extracts from his works, En Route, La Cathédrale, Ste Lydwine, L'Obiat and Les Foules de Lourdes, on the inner pages, black-edged stiff paper bifolium, 8vo, Paris, 1907

Footnotes

  • Having explored Satanism in Là-Bas, Huysmans, in quintessential 'nineties style, died in the arms of his mother church. It is perhaps fitting this, the creator of Des Esseintes's farewell from the world, should be printed entirely in black.
