Specialist Notes

First edition of this amazing example of "combinatorial literature", the tab-mounted striped text system that allows for a considerable number of permutations. As Queneau writes in his preface, "counting 45 seconds to read a sonnet and 15 seconds to change the shutters, at 8 hours a day, 200 days a year, we have more than a million centuries of reading, and reading all day 365 days a year, for: 190258751 years, (without taking leap years into account) ". Limited edition & nbsp; of 2750 copies, ours is the 447. & nbsp;
