Roman.[Paris]: Editions René Julliard, 1963 Stock Code: 139368
First edition, first impression, number 172 of an unspecified limitation (there were also a small number of large paper copies in wrappers.) A seminal work of 20th-century science fiction, La Planète des singes was the inspiration for the Planet of the Apes film series.
Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and front board gilt, tree design to front board in blind, yellow endpapers. With the original acetate jacket.
Some trivial spotting to fore-edge, otherwise a fine copy, with the acetate minimally chipped at tips.
