FIRST AND ONLY EDITION of the first study of gestures, a groundbreaking and libertine work which constitutes a landmark in the history of social anthropology. Hacks (who often used the pseudonym "Docteur Bataille") examines the gestures of children and adults, ancients and moderns, rich and poor, educated and ignorant--he even presents a rather erotic play which consists of entirely gestures (except for one spoken word). Illustrated throughout with fine wood-engravings after Henri Lanos. ONE OF ONLY 30 NUMBERED COPIES PRINTED ON IMPERIAL JAPAN PAPER. 4to. Attractively bound in cloth. Original illustrated wraps bound in. A PERFECT COPY, WITH NO DEFECTS. Caillet II, 4919. Very rare, especially in this state. N° de réf. du libraire 2223
