Paris: Chêne/Hachette, 1981. Text in French. 4to.  pages. Original pictorial white wrappers. A near-fine copy with slightest toning to wrappers. Item #405966
An obscure photobook of images of French girls from the 1970s, referencing Nabokov's heroine Adorae in its title. An interesting reference of French youth style in the 70s, the portraits were made by two photographers, Gilles Mimouni and Jean-Paul Dumas-Grillet, and the preface was written by the French travel writer Muriel Cerf (her endorsement secured publication of the book). Mimouni went on to become an architect and film director, mainly known for his feature L'Appartement (1996). Dumas-Grillet continues to practice as a photographer, and has collaborated with Mimouni on a number of films.
