Paris: Gallimard, 1953. Octavo. Cream colored wraps. Heavy soiling to the covers and chipping along the spine. Binding is exceptionally fragile. Later printing inscribed by Camus on the half-title page. Good.
An incredibly rare signed copy (due to the untimely death of the Nobel Prize winner) of this twentieth century masterpiece.
“I looked up at the mass of signs and stars in the night sky and laid myself open for the first time to the benign indifference of the world.”
