Bataille's first book, widely considered the greatest erotic novel of the 20th century as well as the most important piece of surrealist fiction.

Edition limited to 134 copies (of which very few survive). Printed on fine Arches laid paper.

Minimal traces of wear to binding, internally fine. Fore- and lower edges uncut. A very good copy of an exceedingly rare and important book.
