Notes

First edition, number 14 of 90 copies signed and dated by Gysin at the foot. This is a very scarce piece of original Gysin poem-art, bringing his obsession with experimental cut-up techniques to bear upon his own name to create a quasi-incantatory scroll of nonsense. Only two copies are listed on WorldCat, one at SUNY and the other at the National Library of France. This example retains the original posting tube from Schraenen, franked in 1987 and addressed to Michael Moynihan of Cambridge, Massachusetts - very likely to be Michael Jenkins Moynihan (b.1969), the Boston-born writer, musician, and Satanist who founded the band Blood Axis, once corresponded with Charles Manson, and has published several books on fascist and occult themes. It was more recently in the collection of Julio Santo Domingo.
