Signed book, First edition

François MAURIAC Ce qui était perdu

François MAURIAC

Ce qui était perdu

Grasset, Paris 1930, 12x19cm, broché.


First edition, one of 350 numbered copies on Alfa paper reserved to the press service.
Signed autograph of François Mauriac Robert Garric.
Catholic reformist, he was the   founder of "social Teams" in 1920, which aimed to establish a social elite and bring the good word about the brotherhood born of the trenches to the workers, in the tradition of patronage. Simone de Beauvoir, then student of Robert Garric in philosophy at Sainte-Marie Institute of Neuilly, remembers him   in his "Memoirs of a Tidy Wench"   "Garric appeared; I forgot everything else and myself; the authority of his voice subdued me. In twenty years we he explained, he had discovered in the trenches the joys of camaraderie that removed social barriers. [...] To deny all limits and all separations, get out of my class, out of my skin: this slogan electrified me. [...] Must serve my life! Must serve all my life! "
Back and boards slightly and marginally insolated as generally, some spots essentially affecting the guards.
