    Georges Bataille.

     

    New York: Urizen Books, 1977. Octavo. Black and tan boards with gilt lettering along the spine. An incredibly well preserved book that has clearly never been read. The unclipped jacket has a tiny closed tear near the foot of the spine. First American edition. Book is in fine condition, jacket is near fine.

     

    According to Susan Sontag, "The book which obliges us to confront the idea of pornography as a serious literary genre." Remarkable, transgressive erotica by a secret-society forming mad French philosopher and librarian.
