Things to verify to authenticate a first edition copy:
The first edition follows the deluxe print of 525 numbered copies signed by the author. It is comparable in every way to the deluxe print.
A print number is found under the copyright, from “2nd to 6th printing,” this is the 5th printing and corresponds to a printing of a few weeks after the first or to a false mention of fifth printing as is often the case.
Posterior editions do not have this mention, but letters under the copyright (AA... etc.).

The first edition includes:
A copyright exactly identical to the original edition.
A colophon at the end of the book.
The mention “ouvrage du même auteur" only has 3 titles.
