First in this edition, and uncommon in any. Blaise Cendrars was born in 1887. Of mixed Swiss-Scottish descent, he lived an adventurous and nomadic life in Moscow, Peking, New York and Paris, which inspired much of his zestful and vivid narratives. He was the author of more than twenty books and, along with Apollinaire and Max Jacob, one of the founders of the modern movement. Cendrars died in Paris in 1961. Translated from the French by Nina Rootes. Cover design by Keith Cunningham; title page drawing by Modigliani.
