np (48pp) + np (44pp) + np (2pp), profusely illustrated in color. Text in German and English. Issued in 1976 as the first volume of Edition Hansjorg Mayer's ambitious project of reprinting the complete artist's books of Dieter Roth, "Gesammelte Werke Band 1" reproduces in loving facsimile Roth's very first two projects issued in Reykjavik in the fifties by the artist's Forlag Ed. "Kinderbuch" (1954-57) consists of twenty-eight colorful spiral bound die-cut geometric sheets of stiff paper, and was originally issued in an edition of one hundred copies. "Bilderbuch" (1956) contains sixteen colored die-cut transparent plastic and four white die-cut stiff paper sheets housed in a black celluloid ring binder, and was produced in an edition of only three examples. These are charming book/objects clearly intended for the young at heart of all ages, and compare favorably to Bruno Munari's similar experiments from the same period. Limited to one thousand copies only in reprint, these are accompanied by a single loose colophon page all laid into the publisher's printed stiff cardstock clamshell box. A pristine set of the books (entry number A.14 cited on pages 146-147 of Dirk Dobke's "Dieter Roth in Print: Artist's Books / Kunstlerbucher") whose box shows a few minor handling creases along the foredge.
