Notes

First edition, first printing, rare advance issue. This is not the well-known book edition with the Goya cover but one of only a few advance copies of Foucault's thesis. According to Didier Eribon, Foucault's biographer, the usual practice of the University of Paris at the time was to issue five copies in this simple wrappered format.
