Printed scroll of 3 conjoined sheets of buff-colored laid stock, rolled as issued. 2217 x 58 mm. (ca. 87 1/4 x 2 3/8 inches). A fine copy. "A Fluxus printing of ‘abcedfghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz,’ also called ‘Alphabet Poem,’ was usually included in ‘Fluxus 1" and ‘Fluxkit.’ This work was first published by Verlag Kalender, the publishing house of Bernd Ebeling and Hansjoachim Dietrich, Wuppertal, West Germany, ca. 1961. They also published ‘Kalender Rolle,’ a survey of avant-garde art in 1961 and again in 1962. Printed on a long scroll, their form influenced several Fluxus publications, such as ‘Fluxus Preview Review’" (Jon Hendricks, in Fluxus Codex). Williams’ ‘An Opera’ was issued in the same format, and distributed in the same way. Only the alphabet poem itself appears on the scroll; there is no credit to Williams, nor any publication information. Bookseller Inventory #
