Condition is Very Good+, a few creases from original folds; minimal toning and wear from usage. This hand-written letter from Foucault was dated July 20, most likely in 1970, as the letter mentions that the New York postal service has been on strike. The letter is a reply to a request for a book of Foucault's on Pierre Klossowski [Balthus], and Foucault apologizes for not being able to send it without a huge delay. He thanks the recipient for his letter, and mentions that his letter followed Foucault from point to point. Foucault then mentions that the recipient has put together a "remarkable" team and that they will have a "marvelous ensemble of texts." Most likely this letter is from the time when Foucault was professor at the Univeristy at Buffalo, in NY, and would have been written just after he was elected to the College de France. ; 8 1/4" x 10 1/2"; Signed by Author
