About This Item


Copy of La Nausee, one of the most famous works by Jean Paul Sartre. Sartre was one of, if not the most influential among existentialist philosophers. From a bibliophile point of view this book might as well have an inestimable value because of its dedication. This book is signed by the author and dedicated to Olga (Kosakiewicz / Ольга Козакевич). This not only confirms Sartre's relationship with the ten year younger Ukrainian but it also makes this book unique. The full dedication reads, as shown on scans "A Olga, en trés amical hommage, JP Sartre".

Olga Kosakiewicz was a student of of Simone de Beauvoir who joined the circle of de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre in 1935, when she was only 19. She and her sister Wanda had close connections with French existentialists at the time. Sartre wrote that Wanda was one of the reasons that his friendship with Albert Camus went sour.

The Kiev-born Olga, along with Bianca Lamblin and Natalie Sorokin, later stated that their "trio" relationships with Sartre and de Beauvoir damaged them psychologically. The character of Ivich from one of the Sartre's trilogy is actually a representation of Olga Kosakiewicz.

The philosopher didn't sign many books until the '60 when he was at the peak of his popularity and when most of his works were translated in foreign languages.
