About this Item: Gallimard, Paris, 1942. Soft cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. Appearing in October 1942 in an edition of 2750 copies. This one being a rare advance review copy(“service de presse”). The second leg of Camus’ Absurd Trilogy(Caligula being the third).***** Original wrappers and rare as such. When this book does turn up, it's usually been rebound. A money copy - some spots of rubbing, edge spots and one on the spine, bit of light wear, else Near Fine. A consequential book of the 20th century with practical applicability to real life. ****** “Camus believes that the world is absurd - that we are born by chance, live by encounter, and die by accident. Although we crave happiness on earth and immortality after death, the disproportion between desire and fulfillment defines the absurd. An absurd world is a world without necessity, without purpose, and without essence. Whatever meaning it has, we ourselves have to provide it. Existentialists believe that, because there is no a priori morality, men’s choices and actions fill the void that was left by the disappearance of God. However, says Camus, man’s forlornness should not be construed as a source of despair. On the contrary, God’s death should be viewed not as tragedy but as liberation - and it is this newly found freedom that gives men and women the strength to invent themselves. In an absurd world all choices are possible, even suicide.”(Stoltzfus). Seller Inventory # ABE-1485397893375

About this Item: Gallimard, Paris, 1942. Original wrappers. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. First Edition. FIRST EDITION IN ORIGINAL WRAPPERS OF THE CLEAREST PRESENTATION OF CAMUS'S PHILOSOPHY; AN ESSENTIAL ABSURDIST AND EXISTENTIALIST TEXT. "Although he forcefully separated himself from existentialism, Camus posed one of the twentieth century's best-known existentialist questions, which launches The Myth of Sisyphus: 'There is only one really serious philosophical question, and that is suicide'. And his philosophy of the absurd has left us with a striking image of the human fate: Sisyphus endlessly pushing his rock up the mountain only to see it roll back down each time he gains the top" (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy). As Camus explained in the Preface to a later edition, "Written. amid the French and European disaster, this book declares that even within the limits of nihilism it is possible to find the means to proceed beyond nihilism. In all the books I have written since, I have attempted to pursue this direction. Although 'The Myth of Sisyphus' poses mortal problems, it sums itself up for me as a lucid invitation to live and to create, in the very midst of the desert" (Albert Camus, The Myth of Sisyphus and Other Essays, 1955). Paris: Gallimard, 1942. Octavo, original wrappers; glassine; uncut and largely unopened. Custom slipcase and chemise. A little toning to glassine. A FINE COPY. Seller Inventory # 2048

About this Item: (Paris), Gallimard, (1942). 8vo. Bound uncut with the original printed wrappers, also the backstrip, in a private brandy-coloured full calf binding. Wear to capitals. Internally fine and clean. The extremely rare first edition, first impression, review-copy ("S.P." on title-page and back wrapper), printed on the 22nd of September 1942, of Camus' seminal main philosophical work, being his first philosophical essay, and the work in which he introduces his philosophy of the absurd. Together with Sartre's "Being and Nothingness", "The Myth of Sisyphus" constitutes one of the greatest existentialist works of the 20th century.Only 15 copies, five of which H.C., of the work appeared on better paper (Vélin pur fil), the rest of the issue was printed on normal paper, as here, and is, like Sartre's "L'Étre et le Néant" from the following year, of great scarcity. Later editions of the work contain the apendix "L'espoir er l'absurde dans l'oeuvre de Franz Kafka", which was originally intended for the first edition, but which the publishers hadn't dared publish. With the famous opening lines of his philosophical breakthrough "There is but one truly serious philosophical problem and that is suicide. Judging whether life is or is not worth living amounts to answering the fundamental question of philosophy", Camus introduces to modern existentialism a new approach to the foundational question of existence. His thoughts on life and the meaning of it came to dominate basically all of what we consider existentialist thought in the 20th century. These famous lines introduce a work that presents to modern thinkers the philosophy of the absurd, one of the foundational thoughts of 20th century existentialism, as well as Camus' seminal theories of suicide, a central part of his moral philosophy."Suicide was an important concern for the twentieth century existentialists, who saw the choice to take one's life as impressed upon us by our experience of the absurdity or meaninglessness of the world and of human endeavor. Albert Camus illustrated this absurdity in his philosophical essay The Myth of Sisyphus. For Camus, Sisyphus heroically does not try to escape his absurd task, but instead perseveres and in so doing resists the lure of suicide. Suicide, Camus contends, tempts us with the promise of an illusory freedom from the absurdity of our existence, but is in the end an abdication of our responsibility to confront or embrace that absurdity head on." (SEP). Seller Inventory # 55007
