Limited to 1500 numbered copies, signed by the author and designer/illustrator Janusz Kapusta on colophon (LEC 529). Table of contents with a new preface by the author. First published in 1951, this work is harshly critical of the Communist regime which had governed Poland since 1945. The author compares efforts to impose Communist ideology to efforts to impose a new religion. Frontispiece illustration by Kapusta loosely inserted. Illustrations, including the frontispiece, two in-text pen and ink drawings, and nine full-page oil paintings, throughout text. Kapuska had previously produced drawings and graphics based on the author's works. Fine in fine slipcase.
