Complete with all halftone illustrations. Missing one ring of the spiral plastic binding, light wear, but overall a very attractive copy.
According to 101 Books pp. 80-81, the publisher "attempted to generate demand where none existed by suggesting the edition had sold out," hence the "second edition" statement. The work has a portrait by Picasso and text by Andre Breton, Paul Elouard, Rose Selavy & Tristan Tzara. 101 Books pp. 80-81; Roth 80.
