Out of sequence edition containing three original drawings by the artist and writer and an additional suite of woodcuts preceding the text. Unnumbered, but resembling one of the first 13 copies, the book has been rebound in crushed burgundy morocco with gilt decoration, top edge gilt, a silk book mark and marbled endpapers. A female nude in red crayon signed '23e Seance - 20 minutes Mar 1913 Guierre' precedes a pencil and black gouache study of a male figure, also signed 'Guierre' and a third small pencil sketch if laid in. The second of the sketches is executed on orange card and is tipped in following the first title page which itself announces the suite of woodcuts on 'japon' that precedes the full text with woodcuts. Guierre combined a career as naval officer and submariner with a successful second life as a writer and illustrator.
