Originally published in 1926, Paris Peasant ‘is one of the central works of Surrealism. Unconventional in form and fiercely modern, Aragon uses the city of Paris as a framework interlacing text with the city’s ephemera: café menus, maps, monument inscriptions, newspaper cuttings and the lives of its citizens.’ First English edition in original psychedelic dust-wrapper by Stanley Chapman. Translated and introduced by Simon Watson Taylor. No inscriptions, highlighting or underlining. Binding strong. Dust-wrapper price clipped, slightly foxed and a little worn to edges. Text clean and bright.
