Surrealism

Pour déséquivoquer l’action des surrealists en France. Comptes rendus des reunions tenues du 31 mai au 12 julliet 1947.

50 mimeographed pages total containing the stapled minutes of five meetings held by the Surrealists in Paris, the minutes taken variously by Yves Battistini, Édouard Jaguer, Lucien Justet, and Christian Dotremont, together with some single-page typed letters from the same time period. 4to., with original printed cover titled “Comptes rendus des reunions tenues pour déséquivoquer le surréalisme français” which, after a protest from André Breton, was replaced with the cover which reads “Pour déséquivoquer l’action des surrealistes en France”. Wear to covers, some shattering along spines. Some pages coming loose from staples inside. Paris, 1947.

The Surrealistes-Revolutionnaires were a group founded in Brussels in 1947 by Christian Dotremont and in Paris by Noël Arnaud, rebelling against the Surrealists. Scarce; as of April 2021, OCLC locates four holdings in North American institutions.
