Mythologies

Paris: Éditions du Seuil, 1957. First Edition. Wrappers. 1st edition in the original glassine and printed wrappers, inscribed to writer Marc Bernard: “à Marc Bernard, / en témoignage de / sympathie, / R Barthes.” Perforated ‘S.P.’(service de presse) stamp on the rear wrapper and last two pages. Margins toned lightly throughout, wrappers with some stains along the extremities and toning to the spine, else very good, glassine with some wear to the extremities, else very good. Scarce in the glassine. An important group of 22 essay ranging from soaps and detergents, to professional wrestling, to the face of Greta Garbo to Martians. Barthes uses semiotics (how signs and symbols convey meaning within a given cultural or social contex) to analyze popular culture, particularly how we, as the consumer of these cultural phenomena, are influenced to feel and interpret the signs they convey in specific ways. Very good / very good. Item #967
