LIMITED EDITION, number 42 of 230 copies (from a total edition of 250 copies). Ramon Reventos was a Catalan writer and, with his brother Conti, long-time friend of Picasso, who wrote one of the first articles published on Picasso's work. When Reventos passed away in 1923, his writings fell into obscurity. Many years later, Picasso would write to Conti's son: "I loved your uncle so much that, when it occurred to me to make him acknowledged here, in Paris, because this boy did not enjoy the success that he deserved, it was during the war [1939-1945]. I often went to the National Library, on foot, with all of the dangers that this entailed, in order to copy these two stories, and I copied them all by hand. Someday I will show you in my own handwriting" (Reventos i Conti Picasso i els Reventos, Barcelona, 1972, p 20). Bloch 468–471; Cramer 44.
