Le Soulier de satin ou Le Pire n'est pas toujours sûr, Spanish action in four days. Paris, Gallimard, 1928-1929. 4 volumes in-4, paperback, uncut, gilt embossed cover with bird motifs, slipcase. First edition, with 4 frontispieces composed by José Maria Sert and printed in black on a gold background. Le Soulier de Satin, begun in 1919 and completed in 1924, dominates Claudel's dramatic work as a whole. It is, in the words of one of his many variants, "an enormous drama, an incongruous mixture of buffoonery, passion and mysticism" (En français dans le texte, n°337). Edition of 331 copies, this one of 275 on Lafuma-Navarre pur fil. Missing dust jacket.
