The shore of Syrtes. José Corti Paris 1951. E.O. One of the 40 first copies on Rives paper, this one not numbered. Beautiful autograph letter signed "to my sister / hoping that she will adopt / this ward who was difficult / to raise / Louis". Bound in-8 full caramel morocco, spine with 4 nerves, gold lettering, very discreet stains on the boards, gilt head, back covers with quadruple gold border, covers and spine preserved, witnesses preserved, full paper case, binding signed Seguin relieur Angers. Some spotting on the title page, on the receipt and on the witnesses, short margins at the head. Gracq's masterpiece, crowned by the Goncourt prize which he refused, consistent with himself, and with his text La littérature à l'estomac published shortly before.
