    Source Text for Hitchcock's Vertigo

    Boileau-Narcejac (pseudonym for Pierre Boileau and Thomas Narcejac). ... d'Entre les Morts. ("The Living and the Dead"). Paris: Éditions Denoël, [1954]. The true first edition, preceding the first English language edition by at least two years. Twelvemo. 222, [2] pages. Publisher's original printed wrappers. Wrappers worn and soiled, tape repair to front joint, some soiling to inner wrappers and first few and last few leaves. Text toned. Skewed. Still, a good copy of this scarce and fragile item.

    When released in 1958, Vertigo was a critical and commercial failure. However, in the 1980's the film was re-discovered and re-evaluated by critics and audiences alike. Today, it is generally considered Hitchcock's masterpiece and one of the finest films ever made.
