J.K. Huysmans et Lyon
Charles Guillemain
Imp. de Lyon, 1958.


An essay on Huysmans’ numerous occult and literary connections with the French city of Lyon. It was published as part of the Albums du Crocodile series, in May-June 1958, but Guillemain also published it as a tiré à part in a very limited number of copies: 59 (one for each year of Huysmans' life). There is no difference in the text of the two editions, but the tiré à part has a different monotone cover and title page, is printed on superior quality paper and has a justification page on the inside cover.

This copy includes a letter from Guillemain explaining the publication history of his study.
