Each of the 25 Arguments is hand numbered, with corrections on the last three pages. Although the cover shows some scuffing this copy is extremely rare, since it has been hand signed by Ulises Carrión. On the title page the artist’s book is signed in print, so here also hand signed on the fly leave in the front. When I bought this at Other Books and So the artist offered me to sign his book. As such this copy can be considered as a signed autonomous art work and is most likely the only copy that has been signed, and also merely signed without any dedication. KvG
