Lot 0054
Title: Saint Genet, Actor and Martyr
Publisher: George Braziller
Publication Date: 1963
Binding: Hardcover
Book Condition: Very Good
Dust Jacket Condition: Good
Edition: 1st Edition

This is the stated first printing, September, 1963, by George Braziller, of Bernard Frechtman's translation from French to English of Jean-Paul Sartre's biography, Saint Genet, Actor and Martyr (625 pages). This is a very good book in a very good dust jacket. The jacket has minor edge wear, including a few shallow tears, but no deep tears. It also has light stains and sunning, but no prominent stains.The photo of Genet, and the lettering, are unfaded. The price ($8.50) is not clipped. The cover is very good, with an unfaded black background, white lettering & purple decoration. The spine, with a minimal slant, is securely connected to the inside. The only notable flaws to the inside are a darkening (handling smudges) to the page edges, at the lower outside corner edges, and a crease, with a shallow tear, to the outside edges of two blank end pages. This appears to gave been a printing error, as there is excess paper to these pages. There are no stamps or writings. The binding is tight, with no loose or missing pages. The pages are clean throughout the book, with all lettering as new.There are no other tears or creases. Bookseller Inventory # 1249
