—  This is the VERY FIRST object of its kind.  —

An "artist's proof" is a demonstration of feasibility.  In other industries, it might be called a "proof of concept" or a "prototype".  In the print and publishing industry, it is often simply called a "proof" (which may prove the need for minor revisions to ink color, overall tone, or pressure, etcetera). 

An "artist's proof" is pretty much the same thing!
