France Réveille Toi! Face Au Chaos!

Tanger: Philippe Gau, [1949]. First Edition. Rather scattershot and idiosyncatric call-to-arms published during the author's self-imposed exile in Morocco. The author argues that France of the preceding fifty years has become overly decadent and materialist, the "State" being entirely to blame. In order to rectify the country's moral deterioration, the author proposes a complete government overhaul, including the rewriting of the Constitution, mandatory voting, a single tax system, and a massive lottery held every six months to ensure that within four generations every French family will have the chance to be landowners. Exceedingly scarce, with only the BNF copy located in OCLC, KVK, or COPAC as of September, 2017. Quarto (32cm.); publisher's white color-stenciled wrappers, rear wrapper hand-colored, yapp edges; 33pp.; text printed mimeographed. Some wear to wrapper extremities with a number of tiny losses along edges not approaching text, faint vertical crease to upper cover, else Very Good and sound.
