A presentation copy, inscribed by the author in green ink on the half title 'pour Mary McCarthy Max Ernst', with a characteristic figure drawing  between the two names. McCarthy famously caricatured Ernst's former wife Peggy Guggenheim as Miss Grabbe in her short story 'The Cicerone'.

Text in French, no dust jacket, a fine copy with the faintest finger marking to the lower edge corner.
