Entretiens avec William Burroughs

Paris, France: Editions Pierre Belfond, 1969. First Printing. Softcover. This is the first printing of the very first edition of Daniel Odier's interviews with William S. Burroughs, later published in many French & English-language editions more familiarly to WSB collectors as The Job. On the final, colophon page is a printing date of January 17, 1969, & a legal notice of the first trimester of that year. These are among many points noted in Maynard & Miles' reference to this production (A15 (a), pgs. 61-62), all present here. Softcover original, text in French. The very first appearance of this key work of insight into the life & work of WSB, extremely rare & collectible. In fine condition with only vertical creases along laminate over front, back covers & spine; moderate bump-creases at upper & esp. lower right corners of front cover; faint vertical creases & fading of red title letters at spine; very slight rubbing, scratching & soiling of edges; reference to two different prices in French currency (noted in Maynard & Miles' description) is x'd out by hand in ink at lower right corner of back cover. Interior very fine except for front cover corner creases noted above extending to the first few pages; tiny bit of light soiling to lower right corner of pg. 11. Fine. [Item #2039]
