Consists of blank pages, accompanied by 60 4 X 2 3/4 inch stickers with black-and-white reproductions of photographs, drawings, and paintings. In an act that emphasizes the authorial choice inherent in the arrangement of images, Kippenberger invites the reader to adhere the stickers to the pages and create a unique narrative. While the title page states that all copies were signed and numbered, only a portion of the limited edition feature both a signature and a number, and even fewer have Kippenberger's hand-fixed arrangement of stickers on the internal pages.

First and only early edition of the complete 58-volume Yverdon Encyclopédie, Protestant Switzerland's answer to Diderot's irreligious Encyclopédie, edited and published by Fortuné-Barthélemy Félice (1723-1789). Félice choose not to just reissue Diderot's monumental encyclopaedia, but to improve it by purging Diderot's subversive input, making numerous improvements and adding new entries with the help of Leonhard Euler, Charles François Dupuis, Jérôme Lalande, Albrecht von Haller and others. With these alterations it got a much broader European scope than Diderot's Franco-centric encyclopaedia. Old manuscript shelf marks on the spines of the bindings. The leather of the binding has browned the edges of the endpapers. With only an occasional waterstain in a couple of volumes, otherwise in very good condition and with the plates in very crisp impressions. A few of the spine-labels slightly faded and some occasional minor rubbing to the bindings. A remarkable monument to scholarship, partly based on Diderot and partly new.
