Daumal books from Pier Marton
This photo comes from Pier Marton. Pier was one of the first people to send encouragement about this blog (for which I am eternally grateful). He's holding some of his Daumal collection. I've never seen some of those editions.
Pier also recommends A Seventh Man by John Berger, shown below with another Daumal book. In this interview, Berger says if he had to be judged it would be on A Seventh Man. [It seems to now be out-of-print, and there aren't many copies on the web.]
Pier's French friend also suggested Paludes by Andre Gide. I tracked down a translation, which I haven't had a chance to read yet. It's an early work.
