Paris: Gallimard, 1967. First French Edition, preceded by the Greek edition published by Editions Themelion in 1966. Association copy, inscribed by Vassilikos to author William Styron and his wife: "For Rose and Bill / With all my happiness for the success of the book / Love and nostalgia / from Mimi and Vassilis."
The prolific author's best known work, basis for the 1969 film, an Oscar-winning political thriller directed by Costa-Gavras, adapted by him and Jorge Semprun, and starring Jean-Louis Trintignant and Yves Montand. An acting high point for Montand, and one of the most complex and insightful films ever made about the delicate inter-relationships among conspiracy, revolution, and truth.
Fine in perfect bound white printed wrappers with French flaps.
