Multi-talented Surrealist Valentine Penrose (1989-1978) is here at her most explicitly magical in this French-language poetry collection. Here in her poems she shows her affinity for the occult, astrology, and for the the pagan spirit of nature. This copy is inscribed by Penrose to Maurice Nadeau, historian of the surrealist movement.
