Saporta's Composition No 1, original French edition - 7

Marc Saporta's Composition No 1 is one of the classic loose leaf novels. It was published in 1962, and an American translation was published in 1962. I bought a copy of the English version for US$56 from an online used bookstore, but I wanted to see the French version too. My library got hold of a copy from Denmark, and these photos are so that I remember what it looks like after I've had to give it back. Perhaps there are others who are curious too? It's a little different from the American edition. What really surprised me was how booklike it is. There are so many covers, and the box it slips into is just like one of those boxes you get with boxed sets of books - only even more durable.
