Les Erotiques du Regard -- The Erotics of the Gaze. Paris: André Balland, 1968. Quarto (345 x 265mm). 64 black and white photographs. Original photo-illustrated papered boards (without the rare glassine dust-jacket, wear at spine ends, light spotting on front endpapers). Provenance: bookseller's small ticket pasted on front endpaper.
FIRST EDITION. 'A thoughtful book that concentrates on looking, yet is light-hearted and serious at one and the same time, which means that it both engages and disengages with the erotic in an interesting, thoroughly ambiguous, complex and tantalizing way' (The Photobook). The Photobook, vol. I, p.226.
