Dix paysages gravés a l'eau-forte. Carcassonne (?): pour Gustave Arthur Dassonville, c. 1972. Portfolio of 10 exquisite landscape etchings by Pierre Bazire, each of which is JUSTIFIED (10/15) AND SIGNED IN PENCIL. These etchings evoke the rustic, pastoral landscapes of southern France, bathed in soft sunlight. Additionally there is a title/justification leaf (signed by Gustave Arthur Dassonville, for whom the edition was printed) with an eleventh etching, and another signed proof of that etching (so 12 etchings in all, of which 11 are full-page, loose, signed, and justified). Printed on fine Arches wove paper. Folio. Loose as issued in cloth portfolio with paper label. FINE AND BRIGHT, with no defects. Very rare (only 20 sets were printed: 1-15 and I-V).
