ARP, Hans. Vingt-cinq Poemes. By Tristan Tzara. Illustrated with 10 woodcuts by Arp. 8vo., 205 x 145 mm, bound in original printed boards with a design by Arp. In a new slipcase. Zurich: Heuberger, 1918.
First Edition. A superb association copy of this rare and important early Dada work, inscribed by Tzara to Paul Dermee, the Belgian poet, whom he had at one point named editor-in-chief of DADA. The edition bears no limitation but was extremely small. The book is an important collaboration between two of the founders of the Dada movement who were also two of its most prolific proponents. A small repair to the rear boards, but otherwise an immaculate copy.
