First edition of this critical work on Colette, with Willy’s manuscript annotations throughout. The copy was subsequently in the possession of Willy’s friend Pierre Varenne, who has added a pencilled note to the blank endleaf: ‘Annotations manuscrites de Willy. P.V.’, and a ms. postcard to Varenne from Willy with his photograph: ‘Cher Pierrot…’, signed ‘Yours truly, Willy’ and dated 1928 is laid in. Willy’s annotations begin on the half-title: ‘Réfuter les mensonges…’ and continue with frequent comments in the margins, underlinings, and markings in the text.
