Michaux, Henri.
Paris: Librairie Gallimard/Le Point du Jour, 1951.  
Quarto in stiff paper-covered boards, unpaginated. First edition, one of 1200 hors commerce copies. Mouvements was published in the year of Michaux's first art exhibition, at the Gallerie Rive Gauche, and consists of pages of small calligraphic figures, which Michaux called Meidosems,  "imaginary fragile filament-like creatures that have ‘lost all consistency,’" first explored in his work Life in the Folds two years earlier. The illustrations are accompanied by a poem and a postface by Michaux. Some very light edgewear to printed black white and green wrappers, and a small stain to the bottom of the spine which is evidenced in the gutters of most pages. Still a handsome and near very good copy. With the signature in pencil of Austrian photographer Ernst Haas.
