Dust wrapper is price clipped. Dust wrapper protected in archival mylar cover. ; First UK edition. 702 pages. Oatmeal coloured cloth boards with blue cloth spine. Page dimensions: 221 x 143mm. Top page edges dyed blue. "De Beauvoir is best known for 'The Second Sex' (1949), a pioneering examination along existentialist lines of the female condition. Sartre's Hegel-derived model of the struggle between subjective consciousnesses - each seeking to avoid objectification and to be looker rather than looked-at - is adapted to describe male-female relations." - Jane O'Grady in Honderich, Ted (ed.) "The Oxford Companion to Philosophy" (second edition, 2005). ; 8vo. Bookseller Inventory # 12540
