Exercises in Style

London: Gaberbocchus Press, 1958. First English language edition. 8vo, 198 pp, bound in the publisher's original yellow cloth titled in red at the spine. Photographically illustrated dust jacket.

The first English language edition, translated into English and with a preface by Barbara Wright. A gorgeously designed book, one of the most popular that the press issued. Of special note are the dust jacket, illustrated with fragmented rectangular portions of a photograph of Queneau, and the title page - printed in two colors, with the original french changed to English in red ink - and the dust jacket copy which reads "FOR BLURB SEE PAGE 56."

This is a very good, with old tape ghosts to the endpapers and some minor dust soiling to top edge, but otherwise very bright and square, in a near fine dust jacket that shows some minor dust soiling and a faint area of discoloration at heel. Item #31518

Price: $75.00
