FIRST EDITION.

ONE OF 80 COPIES ON JAPANESE-STYLE PAPER blue, non-commercial edition reserved to the author and the most restricted (before, 100 copies on Holland and 500 copies on vellum).

Inscribed and signed by the author :

"For you, my dear Albert, another "blue" azure, azure, when you hold us... All my portraits are not worth the one you sign. I kiss you, Colette."

The addressee is most probably Albert Flament, a journalist close to the author who left several portraits of Colette that appeared in the press (We would like to thank Frédéric Maget for this identification.)
