First edition, first printing, French issue (both the French and Japanese issues were printed in Japan and issued apparently simultaneously). An important association copy, with Klein's contemporary signed presentation inscription on the half title to his friend Germano Facetti, and his wife, "to Germano, man of the future, noblest Roman of them all, and Mary, con tante cose, Bill." Facetti is most famed for his re-design of Penguin Books in the 1960s. He also took part in the landmark exhibition "This is tomorrow" in 1956 and appeared as himself in Chris Marker's cult science-fiction film, La Jetée (1962). Klein also appeared in that film, as a "Man of the future".
Folio. Original black and red laminated boards, black endpapers.
Illustrated throughout with monochrome photographic reproductions.
Head of spine expertly repaired otherwise a very good copy.
