Hayter’s third publication, preceded by the print portfolios Paysages Urbains (1930) and L’Apocalypse (1932), six engravings to illustrate George Reavey's "Faust's Metamorphoses" poems, with a foreward by Samuel Putnam. George Reavey (May 1, 1907 – August 11, 1976) was a Russian-born Irish Surrealistpoet, publisher, translator and art collector. He was also Samuel Beckett’s first literary agent. In addition to his own poetry, Reavey's translations and critical prose helped introduce 20th century Russian literature to an English-speaking audience. He was also the first publisher to bring out a collection of English translations of the French surrealist poet Paul Eluard. This is the whole book, 1932, comprising six engravings, with title-page, text and justification, this copy signed in ink by artist and author, numbered 23 from the edition of 100, published by The New Review Editions, Paris, on Van Gelder Zonen laid paper, the full sheets, uncut and bound in original paper wrappers
