Ten Days That Shook The University: Of Student Poverty Considered in its economic, political, psychological, sexual and, particularly intellectual aspects, and a modest proposal for its remedy.
London: BCM/ Situationist International, nd. (1967). 8vo. Card wrps., 32pp.
This copy bears the ownership name of Paul Sieveking inside the front cover and a King Mob stamp on the colophon page (Sieveking was part of BM Ducasse, a group formed around, among others, fellow Cambridge undergraduate John Fullerton and former member of the pro-Situ Kim Philby Dining Club, Anthony Wilson, future co-founder of Factory Records).
The first English language version, edited by Christopher Gray and translated by Donald Nicholson-Smith and TJ Clark. Includes a 6pp. postscript ("If you make a social revolution, do it for fun") written by the four English members of the SI (Clark, Gray, Radcliffe and Nicholson-Smith) on the reactions to the tract's publication and its relevance to politics in England. They concluded that "The only real subversion is in a new consciousness and a new alliance - the location of the struggle in the banalities of everyday life, in the supermarket and the beatclub as well as on the shopfloor. The enemy is entrism, cultural or political. Art and the Labour Movement are dead! Long live the Situationist International!"
This edition was illustrated, alongside other editions, in Internationale Situationniste #11 (p.24). The cover, designed by Charles Radcliffe, reproduces a version of André Bertrand's détourned comic strip 'Le Retour de la Colonne Durutti', with further images from it reproduced inside, each one provided with an English text.
Some creasing and wear to cover, o/w Very Good.
