Lot 664: French existentialist, writer, and social essayist (1908–1986). AQS in French on an off-white 8.25 x 11.5 sheet bearing an affixed biographical clipping, signed at the bottom, "S de Beauvoir." Beauvoir pens a brief quote from her important feminist work The Second Sex, in full: "On ne nait pas femme, on le devient—(Deuxieme Sexe)," which famously translates to "One is not born, but rather becomes, woman." Affixed to a slightly smaller sheet of cardstock. In fine condition, with trivial soiling, creasing, and wear to corner tips.
