Note: Narkiss is the name of a story written by the French author Jean Lorrain in the late 1800's. It was dedicated to "...my friend Lalique". The story is about the Greek mythological figure Narcissus (the guy that fell in love with his own image). Narkiss is Lorrain's name for the Egyptian prince who is the central figure in her version of the myth. The story was first published just before before 1900 and was reprinted in 1902. In 1908 finely bound illustrated reprints were issued. It was a popular story in its day and is said to have inspired the Russian Ballet Narcisse that first premiered at Casino Monte-Carlo in April of 1911 with none other than the dancing legend Vaslav Nijinsky in the title role. Roger and Gallet used the Narkiss name for one of their fragrances for which Lalique created 4 similarly designed Narkiss Perfume Bottles. You can see all four of them at Roger et Gallet.

Also Note: The May 2022 listing below has a lot of photos of the interior of the book.
