Arthur Rimbaud: A Season in Hell

Was the most precocious and brilliant poet in the history of France aware that this work, a 'prodigious spiritual autobiography' according to Verlaine, would soon become one of the most widely read works in the world, a century after his death? Did he know that these lines would soon represent his abrupt farewell to poetry? 

Limited edition: 1,000 hand numbered copies

This framed print is composed of the only extant fragments of Rimbaud's Manuscript for A Season in Hell, written recto-verso. They are considered as drafts of Mauvais sangNuit de l'enfer and Alchimie du verbe. On the verso of these sheets, one can find the trace of a later work, Proses évangéliques, that Rimbaud would have written during the same period as A Season in Hell.

Written between April and August 1873, when the poet was only 19 years old, A Season in Hell was the only work that Rimbaud printed himself with the Alliance typographique M. J. Poot et Compagnie – 54 pages as a little book (18,3 cm sur 12,4 cm) – limited to only 500 copies sold for 1 franc each.



Thanks to a new reproduction of the only full draft of Mrs. Dalloway, handwritten in three notebooks and initially titled “The Hours,” we now know that the story she completed — about a day in the life of a London housewife planning a dinner party — was a far cry from the one she’d set out to write (...)

A Season in Hell

Superbe reproduction (les contours du 3eme feuillet auraient mérités un traitement identiques aux deux premiers... les traits blancs de la découpe apparaissent.. mais je pinaille!). Un voyage dans le processus créatif d'un chef d'œuvre.

J'ai commandé cette copie et elle m'a été envoyé rapidement et en parfaite état, j'habite en Arizona alors ce n'est pas chose aisée. Je suis ravie de l'exemplaire reçue, l'article est une reproduction parfaite. J'aurai toutefois apprécié étant visiblement un article en vente en édition limité recevoir un numéro d'authenticité. Je recommande cet article et le SAV est réactif. Merci aux éditions Les Saints Pères de proposer de si beaux articles.

I just received my copy of 'Frankenstein' and I am so love with the edition. The book is gorgeous, well-made, and it lights up my Shelleyan heart. I cannot recommend this book, or SP books enough. They have been very pleasant to order from, they've been prompt in customer service, and their product is beyond compare. I'm very pleased!!!
