Moselly, Émile. Pissarro, Camille Illustrator. Le Livre Contemporain, Paris, 1912. Limited edition on 116 copies numbered, in the original cardboard slipcase. Illustrated with 12 wood engravings, hors texte in two-tone colors, especially drawn by Camille Pissarro for this edition.
Reference from The Artist & the Book 247: "The twelve plates hors texte were designed by Camille Pissarro to be cut as chiaroscuro blocks by his son Lucien. After Camille's death the text was provided to accompany the plates. In designing the book, Lucien wherever possible adapted sketches by his father for the other illustrations. Lucien's Studio Book records that most of the large blocks were cut and proofed before Camille's death in 1903"
