Les Soldats de Reni-Mel Signed by Louis Reni-Mel 1st / 1st 1918
Paris: Editions D’art (1918). Oblong folio in the original publishers paper folder. Both the front and back pages disbound. The covers are complete but both have several small tears to the edges. All 25 large engravings are in nice condition. Overall an excellent folio and scarce in its original state.
This is one of a limited number of 300 (this being 193) and is signed by official french war artist Leon Reni-Mel to the front cover. Engravings are on chiffon arches artists paper.
Engravings are primarily sketches of the french army and individual soldiers sketched by Remi-Mel as he covered the conflict as the official artist for the french ministry for war.
