The Fall of Jerusalem.

London: Atlas Press, 1997. First edition. Sq. 8vo. Plain card wrps., printed dustwrapper with paper label affixed to the upper panel, 235pp. Translation by Malcolm Green.

One of 50 numbered copies SIGNED by Nitsch, with an original signed drawing laid in (there were also 12 lettered copies reserved for the publishers and artist, and 250 numbered, unsigned copies). Housed in a matching blood-red marbled stiff card slipcase, accompanied by a folded map of the city (135x85cm.).

"The Fall of Jerusalem" was first published in a fine bibliophile’s edition of 75 copies in 1974, followed three years later by an edition of 1000, in reduced format, as issue #17 of Günter Brus’s magazine Die Drossel. The title is a dedication to Artaud, and the work describes a series of actions to be played in the 1087 rooms of a subterranean city, a Dionysian drama of death and resurrection.

Traces of red ink from the dustwrapper have rubbed off onto the folded edges of the map, o/w Fine.
