To renew "my" showcase, which faces the one in which Radichtchev is housed, I suggest that you display in it a single copy of each of these four books: Considerations, Spectacle, Comments and The Game of War (this to recall the variety of my talents). And I would be well-displayed, either above or below, in the company of four great scandals, which are [the books by] Sexby, Junius, and Cravan and [Orwell's] Homage to Catalonia. The fact that these are four Englishmen will constitute a good reminder at the moment in which Madame Thatcher travels to Poland to inspire Jaruzelski.Cordially,
 The vitrine containing Debord's Comments on the Society of the Spectacle and located in the Editions Gerard Lebovici bookstore.
