Rozmowy z Diablem (Conversations with the Devil).
First Edition. Warsaw, Panstwowy Instytut Wydawniczy, 1965. Octavo. 120 pages. Original, illustrated softcover in protective collector’s mylar. Original first polish edition. The work translated as “Conversations with the Devil”. A collection of witty incisive dialogues which cast moral and religious issues in a rather curious light. A tour de force. Kolakowski’s criticism of Marxism made him a focus of intellectual dissent in Poland from 1956 until his emigration to the U.S. in 1968. A very good+ copy with creasing to one page, in illustrated red self-wraps with wear to spinal extremities.
