Guy Debord’s Society of the Spectacle is undoubtedly the most famous Situationist text. Original published as La Société du Spectacle, in French, in 1967 by Buchet/Castel, Paris prior to the May ’68 riots.
The first English language edition was published by Red & Black in Detroit 1970 and quite openly states unauthorized translation (by Fredy Perlman & others) on the title page.
The first printing has no additional impressions indicated on copyright page. The 2nd in 1973 is clearly stated. Black & Red remain the publisher to this day. Later someone had the foresight to switch the front and back covers and it’s the image of cinema goers wearing 3-d spex that has become most associated with this book.
At time of uploading a 1st & 2nd edition available.
