Simone de Beavoir - The Mandarins
New York: The World Publishing, 1956. First American edition, second printing. Hardcover. 8vo. 610 pp. Blue cloth binding. Good condition. Former owner's name on front free endpaper in blue ink; rubbing to corners of covers, textblock fore-edge. No markings to text. Dust jacket is somewhat edge-worn yet still bright and colorful. Winner of the Prix Goncourt award in 1954.
The Mandarins describes the steamy intrigues of de Beauvoir's sexy philosopher friends (Camus, Sartre and Nelson Algren, e.g., appear under thin fiction) and other paramours in the aftermath of the second World War. Well, it's better than Anais Nin, anyway.
