(Budapest): AB Független Kiadó, (1987). First Hungarian edition. Typescript, mimeograph copy. In publisher’s cover, with the illustrated dust jacket. 152 p. In fine condition.

Hungarian samizdat edition of Kundera’s novel “The Farewell Party”.

In Communist régimes the publication of many material were illegal and therefor underground publishings and secret ways of spreading of “samizdat” books developed.

Samizdat editions, mostly political pamphlets, appeared in Hungary in the 1970s in the poor form of carbon copies of typescripts. Later in the 80s the so-called Democratic Opposition in Hungary established semi-underground publishings, like “AB Független” to publish not merely political literature but also literature that was banned by the Communist politics, among others the works of Milan Kundera or George Orwell.

Scarce. We could not trace any copies in institutional holdings.
