Text in English, French, German. Published in 1500 copis with an original color lithograph on Arches paper with Ernst's signature signed into the stone, and this lithograph appears just before the contents page. (After printing, the first 79 lithographs were hand-signed and numbered by Ernst. This is NOT one of those copies.) With essays by both Spies and Leppien, a glossary of terms in the catalogue, the extensive catalogue itself, an alphabetical list of titles, a concordance, and addenda/corrigenda section. Certainly exhaustive and well-organized. A beautiful copy!
