Jean-Paul Sartre – L’imagination. Paris: Félix Alcan, 1936

8vo, [iv], 162, [2] pp., original printed wrappers, tiny closed tear at top of front hinge, bottom edges a little stained, uncut, a very good clean copy.

First edition of Sartre’s first book, published when he was 30 and teaching at a lycée in Le Havre. It appeared as Volume 10 of the Nouvelle encyclopédie philosophique, of which the series editor was Sartre’s dissertation supervisor at the Ecole Normale Supérieur, Henri Delacroix.

‘L’imagination is by far the most ambitious of Sartre’s studies in phenomenological psychology, and it also makes a much more direct approach to his later ontological themes’ (Encyclopedia of Philosophy).
