An Anecdoted Topography of Chance; done with the help of his very dear friend Robert Filliou and translated from the French and further anecdoted by their very dear friend Emmett Williams, enriched with still further anecdotations by their very dear friend Dieter Roth (translated out of the German for the first time by Malcolm Green), with 100 refelctive illustrations by Topor.

London: Atlas Press, (1995). First edition thus. Wraps. Square 8vo, unpag.; wrappers; housed in publisher's two-chamber slipcase together with the separately printed fold-out photo-collage "Cubist View of My Room," here in the form of a six-color screenprint by Uldry Serigraphie printed on 105g Tyvek, in printed and embossed chemise and wraparound band. Fine. Item #203201

One of 100 numbered copies, published in the series Atlas Arkhive, documents of the avant-garde. Signed on the front wrapper by Spoerri, Roth, Williams, and Topor (Filliou had died by the time of this publication). An expanded and, one could perhaps say, definitive edition, incorporating all the various additions, embellishments, and extra materials that accrued to the work through various previous editions and translations, going back to Spoerri's original 1962 exhibition pamphlet, and adding a new introduction. The original work itself, one of the great achievements of the Fluxus movement, was a pioneering contribution to the early development of conceptual art.
