LE CINÉMA FANTASTIQUE by Patrick Brion, Martinière (Editions de La), 1996.  Condition: Good.

The subtitle translates as “the great American classics from The Lost World to 2001: A Space Odyssey.” This is a French book, but with lots of very nice, large images, some examples of which are below. It covers the classics of Hollywood cinema from the genre the French call the fantastique, which includes horror and science fiction. Currently, the cheapest price you will find on the net is US$134, as offered by a dealer in Germany.

UPDATE: Sold.
