About this Item: La Roulotte, Paris, 1950. Hardcover. Condition: Very good. First Edition. First Edition. Hardcover. 9 1/4" X 6 1/4". 54pp, plus 80 photographs on glossy paper bound at rear. Text in French. Original edition after 50 numbered copies. Appears to be a binding variant, with what is customarily the pictorial dust jacket instead forming the binding as pictorial paper over boards. Heavy edgewear to binding, with edges and extremities rubbed to boards, chipping at edges and head and tail of spine, and scattered rubbing. Hinges a touch tender; binding remains sound. Bookseller notations penciled to front free endpaper. Text-pages age-toned, but otherwise unmarked. Some rubbing below captions on plates 19-20 and 74. Written by poet, journalist, and lexicographer Robert Giraud and police inspector and later historian Jacques Delarue (Inspecteur a la Direction des Services de Police judiciaire de la Surete nationale), this scarce, early book on tattooing was intended for an audience of police officers and criminologists. Illustrated throughout in 80 tattoo drawings by Jacques Delarue and 80 black and white photographs, eleven of which are by humanist photographer Robert Doisneau. Seller Inventory # 3472
