How it works


Scarce first edition with jacket designed by Brion Gysin.

Publisher's green wraps with black printed titles. Contents clean and binding tight. Dust jacket has some minor abrasions along the spine but still in very good condition.

"New Francs: 15,00." on front flap of dust jacket. Code "1-88" at foot of front end-paper. There is no "New Price 18 Francs" overstamp on the rear panel, which is a distinguishing feature between the first and second states of the first edition, although there is a sticker over the original price with the number 18 (18 Francs) written on it.
