Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dustwrapper. Dustwrapper very slightly rubbed at the edges. Text complete, clean and tight but a little age-tanned.

Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “Simone de Beauvoir’s biography tells how one woman moved away from the claustrophobia of the French bourgeoisie and pioneered a life of social and intellectual freedom. Throughout her fifty-year relationship with jean-Paul Sartre she retained a fiercely independent spirit. This is the first serious assessment from Britain not just of the sometimes sensational life of the high priestess of French feminism but also of her literary worth.”
