[pseud. BATAILLE, Georges] AUCH, Lord

Histoire De L'Oeil

Paris: Burgos [Jean-Jacques Pauvert] 1941 [1951]

Octavo, pp. 127. French text. Original grey paper wrappers, lettered in red on front panel only. A little edgewear, otherwise a fine, unopened copy.

Number 238 of 500 stated copies (although 2,000 are thought to have been printed).
The typeface used in the last section of the book is smaller than the rest: according to Patrick Kearney, this is because Pauvert didn't order enough paper for the job. First published in 1928 in an illustrated edition of just 134 copies, few of which survive. A very fine copy.
Dutel 1700.
