Semiotexte [or Semiotext(e)] no. 1, Winter 1974

New York: Columbia University, 1974. First printing. Paperback. 8.5 x 11 inches, cloth backed wraps, very good, light wear and minor fading, 95 (1) pp., one short red ink note to one page, "K's cerebro-anal insertion" -- which we find rather charming. "Alternatives in Semiotics" issue, with articles in French and English. Very rare first issue of this major influential journal of deconstruction, cultural studies and semiotics, the first to really merge and synthesize the intellectual projects of French and American scholars. Founded in 1974, Semiotext(e) began as a journal that emerged from a semiotics reading group led by Sylvère Lotringer at Columbia University. Initially, the magazine was devoted to readings of thinkers like Nietzsche and Saussure, but expanded in the next years to include such diverse voices at Kathy Acker and Michel Foucault, ultimately producing a series of small black paperbacks under the Semiotext(e) imprint that was a main conduit of French deconstruction to America. Unclear how many copies of this are in institutions. Very Good. Item #H19548
