from Guy Debord

To Jean-Jacques Pauvert
[8 September 1992]

On Saturday I sent to you, in two packages, the materials described below, for the exposition at your bookstore:[1]

Five posters from May 68 and the poster for the Conference [of the Situationist International] at Antwerp in '62.

One cover from Oeuvres cinematographique completes.

Sixteen photographs from the film In girum (the order of the series is marked).

One collection of the journal I.S. (1958-69).

The Society of the Spectacle: original edition by Buchet-Chastel and the first Champ Libre edition.

Memoires (1958).

In girum and Panegyric: Lebovici editions.

Six enlarged photographs showing 1) the author in 1952; 2) his famous inscription from 1953; 3) the page from Memoires that evokes the first screening of Hurlements en faveur de Sade; 4) the first page of the manuscript of The Society of the Spectacle (1967); 5) the first printed page of the Comments from 1988; and 6) the author in 1984.

I hope that this corresponds closely with what you desire.

Best wishes,
