It was from the Marquis de Sade that the word "Sadism" was derived. This is the first Grove edition of The 120 Days of Sodom and other writings. It is also the first printing. The book contains introductions by Simone de Beauvoir (The Second Sex) and Pierre Klossowski. The volume is large at 799 pages and the book itself shows a slight bump to the corner of the upper right front board and some minor shelfwear to the top of the spine. The dustjacket is not price-clipped and shows some slight shelf-wear and there is a chip to the upper left rear panel. There are also a couple of very small spots to the front edge. This is a very nice copy of a major classic of literature. We are pleased to send pictures on request.

Price = 140.00 USD
