About this Item

4tos. both. First volume, tape bound; the second, spiral comb. Each as issued. Both near fine. Both also warmly INSCRIBED by Friedman to Something Else publisher and fellow Fluxus member Dick Higgins. The first reads: "'Read Higgins!" / James Joyce / [drawing of a pen] / For DH / with love / Ken Friedman / 20 October '82." The second, inscribed in two different ink, is: "To Dick S. Higgins, / friend, Fluxbrother, / mentor, in gratitude / for two [drawing of a smiley face sticking its tongue out] decades / of good memories / Ken Friedman / 1985 / [drawing of a hand]. 233 and 251 leaves respectively, printed rectos only. Both very good plus. Two-volume catalogue of Friedman's happenings and other Fluxus performances. The first volume includes events through 1967, the latter updates though 1983's. Higgins and Friedman collaborated on a book "The epickall quest of the Brothers Dichtung and other outrages" (Printed Editions, NY, 1978). In addition, Friedman was the general manager of Higgins' Something Else press in the 1970's. A fine association between these two key Fluxus figures. The revised 1985 edition of this title is scarce; OCLC locates 8 copies. The 1982 edition, however, is rare. We find no listing for it in OCLC, locating only a copy at Northwestern described as [1982?] but not matching the bibliographic details of this copy. Bookseller Inventory # 12660

Store Description

I focus on intrinsically interesting, important, or unusual books in all fields. Specialties include popular culture; esoterica; modern & contemporary literature; John Steinbeck; The Beat & NY schools; poetry & small press; the avant-garde; little magazines & lit. journals (especially those associated with the Mimeo Revolution); manuscripts & archives; literary ephemera; Americana; as well as vernacular, folk, and outsider books of all kinds. A sense of the eclecticism I strive for can be seen in some of material I've recently handled. From an illuminated 15th-century manuscript Book of Hours to a collection of photographs and collages by Beat great William S. Burroughs, from a Yosemite tourist album containing some of the earliest images of a Sierra Club expedition to an important archive of letters from writer Henry Miller to his agent, I seek material that will fascinate and endure. I am always looking to purchase fine books in any of my areas of interest, from single titles to collections. Please inquire. Search and want services are available, as are appraisals and collection development. For three years I maintained an open shop in Monterey, CA (formerly the Cannery Row Old Book Co.). I now work in the Washington DC area and maintain office space in downtown Silver Spring MD. I am open by chance or appointment. I also exhibit regularly at book fairs around the country. Please check my website for upcoming events. To date, I've issued five catalogues of rare books. Copies may be downloaded on my website (briancassidy.net). Print copies may also be requested. Please email to be added to our mailing list.
