After Reasonable Research
Brooklyn, USA: Horse in a Storm Press, 1999
1 pp [accordion-fold], 8 1/2 x 4" [folded] 8 1/2 x 96" [unfolded]
Edition of 150
Housed in a cardboard sleeve, this accordion-fold bookwork lists (in a minuscule font) every year between 1 and 1999, along with every known war or battle that took place in them. "Years with no acts of 'open and declared armed hostile conflict' are indicated with a perpendicular line ... perhaps they were periods of peace." (there is only one).
The first edition is available here for £ 93.25, and the third, expanded edition here for $45.00 US.
