I recently came cross this notice in the “Lost and Found” section of the March 19, 1942 New York Times. The mind reels at the questions raised by this notice. Was this Breton’s own copy of the book? He and his family were living as political refugees in New York at the time. Did anyone find it? Was the reward claimed?
BOOK, bound copy of Nadja, by Andre Breton; left I.R.T. train Times Square: $5 reward. T 159 Times.
