A fine copy, inscribed by Sartre

First edition, first printing, inscribed by the author on the half-title "Hommage de JP Sartre".

Sartre's reflections on the Jewish question, written in the aftermath of the Holocaust, offers an analysis of what makes a person Jewish and the nature of the anti-Semite. In Sartre's view, a person is Jewish if they are viewed as such in the eyes of others, rather than it being their religion or ethnicity. As of such, anti-Semitism can only be ended on the part of the non-Jews, rather than the Jews themselves.

This copy is one of 3,000 unnumbered copies on "vélin alpha" paper (a further 120 numbered copies on "pur fil" paper were also issued as "tirage de tête"). The first part had been published in December 1945 in Les Temps Modernes, with this being the first printing of the whole text.
