(DE COINTET, GUY). DE COINTET, GUY - GUY DE COINTET: A CAPTAIN FROM PORTUGAL

 1465327361,
NP (Los Angeles). ND (1972)., Self-Published., First Edition 1/700. Illustrated Wrappers, 12mo, np (48pp), profusely illustrated in b&w. In a protective clear acetate dustwrapper. "A Captain From Portugal" is the first artist's book published by the late Parisian-born, Los Angeles-based conceptual and performance artist Guy de Cointet. It is comprised of primarily rune-like letterforms of a self-devised language with an example of music, and what appears to be a line of hieroglyphics thrown in. While it bears no publication details - nor in fact any English - it is noted as having been self-published by the artist in 1972 in an edition of seven hundred copies in Frederic Paul's authoritative 2014 Flammarion monograph "Guy de Cointet". A most handsome example of this exceedingly uncommon item - only four copies are currently cited in OCLC WorldCat - showing a bit of age-toning and soiling to its white wrappers.. Near Fine.
