"The Da Costa appeared unannounced in certain bookshops in St-Germain-des-Pres in the autumn of 1947. Anonymous and deliberately designed so that it appeared to be one fascicle, and not the first, of an encyclopaedia being published periodically, it began not only in mid-sentence, but mid-word and bore the heading Fascicle VII, volume II ... It was of insolence and immoderate use of sarcasm ... The Da Costas, by remaining anonymous, and enthusiastically stirring so much invective into the ideological pot, were obviously not aiming for reconciliation, and if some of the attacks today are obscure ... those on the institutions of state, church, learning etc. are still fresh and steaming ..." (A. Brotchie, 1995 edition of Le Da Costa ...)Articles in the Da Costa are by Georges Ambrosino, Georges Bataille, Francis Bouvet, Andre Breton, Jacques Brunius, Jacques Chavy, Rene Chenon, Charles Duits, Marcel Duchamp, Jean Ferry, Sandor Garay, Jindrich Heisler, Marcel Jean, Robert Lebel, Patrick Waldberg and a few more. .
