Inscribed by the author: “A Monsieur Régis son ami Monsieur Louis”. The working-class novelist’s first success, a study of Parisian low-life in which the influence of Tolstoy and Dostoevsky is predominant, first published in 1901.

Octavo. Later marbled paper boards, spine lettered gilt. Inscribed by the author on the half-title, original printed wrappers bound in. Spine worn at ends, paper browned and brittle as often, front wrapper a little chipped and detached, still a good copy.
