Many black & white, full-bleed illus. Unpaginated. 4to, printed stiff wrappers, plastic spiral bound. Paris: 2007.
A very rare bookseller-exhibition catalogue. It closely mimics Seth Siegelaub’s 5-31 January, 1969 exhibition catalogue. A fine range of artists’ books and photobooks are offered (without prices), including work by Acconci, Baldessari, Barry, Calle, Christo, Feldmann, Graham, LeWitt, Messager, Monk, Nauman, Pierson, Ruscha, Ulay, Sugimoto, Warhol, Wool, etc. Most of the items are illustrated. “Thanks to sjleib” is printed on the final page, indicating that Steven Leiber played some part in the compilation of this catalogue.
Near fine copy; extremities the slightest bit worn.
