Max ELSKAMP - Illuminations. Landscapes - Hours - Lives - Songs - Grotesques. Brussels, Paul Lacomblez, 1898. In-8, 213 x 158 mm, paperback, printed and decorated cover in parchment. 90 ochre woodcuts engraved by the author. ORIGINAL EDITION printed at 256 numbered copies. ONE OF THE 3 ON IMPERIAL JAPON (n° 4), 2nd paper. Despite the success of his earlier works, Max Elskamp experienced a deep crisis as early as 1896. It took him several years, solitude finally regained, to compose, decorate and edit this one. "The whole city, this imaginary city which is his, and which he situates in Flanders, lives there, peaceful and loved" (Guiette, Poètes d'aujourd'hui, Seghers, p. 74). Nice copy, De Sadeleer, 20.
