Out of a total edition of 360 copies signed by the translator this is one of 300 numbered copies.Presentation copy from the translator, inscribed on the first blank: ''à Louis Hay - qui me met dans l'obligation de continuer au jeu du Boojum, lequel est de longtemps mort, mais, j'espère, bientôt moi aussi - amicalement Aragon.'' The recipient was a French literary theorist and one of the founders of genetic criticism. In 1976 he established the Centre d'Analyse des Manuscrits under the aegis of the Centre National de Recherche Scientifique to which Aragon bequeathed his archive, together with that of his wife Elsa Triolet.Some rubbing to spine. Very good.
