"Bible of libertine for some, the book stands out above all as a masterpiece of the analytical novel, as one of the most abstract and intelligent novels." (Laurent Versini, In French in the text).
The false title in Part III does not contain the signature'A' or the white sheet at the end. Sheet 101/102 of Part IV has a few corners ripped off and touching a few letters, if not very good copy.
