Many of the pages are folded, torn or sliced as issued, or contain printed concrete poetry. Black printed covers, bolt binding, with original oblong title label loosely affixed to front cover. Very slight wear to label, otherwise a very fine copy. Roth's fourth artist's book, published by Daniel Spoerri as issue No.2 of the review 'material'. Published in an edition of only 200 copies, though it’s unlikely that many were made. Two supplements were also originally issued to accompany the book, and are in fact even harder to find, in fact in spite of the plethora of Rot’s often infuriating scribbly work, it is exceedingly difficult to find examples of the artist's conceptually rigorous, materially imaginative early books in their original published state, according to the Roth RaisonnÈ. We bought one 35 years ago for £35 from an ardent collector who had two for reasons unknown, sold it for £250 two years later in Index nr. 2, to Lame Duck Books then spent over ten years searching for another copy to no avail. Finally one was found, in London, for £3500, albeit with the rare insert sheets mentioned, which 12 years ago still seemed a bit high, as the dealer offered no discount whatever, as he had been searching for ten years for his copy. Then this one was finally obtained. All that narrative for an anti-narrative booklet. Very slight wear to label, otherwise a very fine copy. N° de réf. du libraire 244
