Georges Limbour

A novelist, poet and art critic, the 'man with the winged soles', as Michel Leiris liked to describe him, was impressive for the range of his writing talents. The library houses many editions of his texts, dedicated to Raymond Queneau or to Armand Salacrou, as well as several illustrated books, including the magnificent Soleils bas, printed on Japanese vellum and illustrated by etchings by André Masson.

The notes and manuscripts of the author have been donated to the library, which has a policy of regularly developing this collection, which now includes correspondence (in particular with Geneviève and Gaëtan Picon, donated in 2000, with Armand and Lucienne Salacrou and with Jean Dubuffet) and rare editions, thanks in particular to the support of the Fonds Régional de Restauration et d'Acquisition pour les Bibliothèques de Haute-Normandie (FRRAB). The library devoted two exhibitions to Georges Limbour in 1982 and in 2000, as well as a colloquium on the centenary of his birth.

This collection of documents is inventoried in the library's online catalaogue and, in part, in the Catalogue collectif de France.
