As indicated by the “Providence” address on the colophon, I gather this is the second printing (or reissue) of the 1985 Grim Reaper Books first edition of Hakim Bey’s profoundly influential prose-poetic manifesto, CHAOS, which has since been republished numerous times, usually under the title T.A.Z. (Temporary Autonomous Zone) in subsequent editions that incorporate supplemental texts. The Grim Reaper Books printings were privately bound in wraps, and this one is signed by Hakim Bey (aka Peter Lamborn Wilson), who died in 2022. The cover image is securely pasted on, and it should be noted that the cover wraps are slightly warped and discolored along the binding, which may be due to environmental wear or improper storage by the previous owner. The interior is clean and free of markings. The text is, of course, easy to find online and in print, but signed copies of the original GRB printings are now extraordinarily scarce. I don’t know how many of these were originally printed, but they don’t come up often at auction or otherwise. $500 is my price, regardless. Additional photos will be provided to prospective buyers upon request.
