Paris: Ferenczi, 1935. First French Edition, preceding all others. Text in French.

According to "Zombies", Julien Betan and Raphael Colon's 2009 comprehensive survey of the sub-genre, de Miomandre's novel represents the first modern zombie novel, while 2015's "Z pour Zombies" by Bernard Perron, Antnio Dominguez Leiva, and Samuel Archibald note "part of the novel takes place in the head of the zombie, which, conscious but helpless, feels an external force taking hold of his body," a rarity among zombie stories even today.

Very Good plus in wrappers. Owner name to the front endpaper. Slight lean, with light creasing, small bruise from a partially removed paper spine label, and ink obscuring the price on the front wrapper.
