DINE, Jim. The Poet Assassinated. By Guillaume Apollinaire. 128 pp. Illustrated with eight original pochoir plates, each signed and numbered by Dine. 4to., 260 x 210 mm, loose as issued with plates and text laid into an illustrated wrapper with original glassine, colour printed slipcase. New York: Tanglewood Press, 1968.
An immaculate copy of one of the least known Pop Art books, whose rarity is probably due to the presence of the 8 loose signed pochoir prints, which are, unfortunately, an open invitation to breakers. It is not mentioned in any of the standard references. Number 30 of 250 copies of the Deluxe Edition, the colophon signed by Dine and translator Ron Padget.
