SOME/THING

[#18099]
Nos. 1-4/5 (= Vol. 1-2, all publ.). New York, Spring 1965 - Summer 1968. 8vo, Original wrappers., in excellent condition, also the fragile no 3 cover is in good condition (and not detached as is frequently the case). This perforated sticker cover (stamps designed by Andy Warhol: "Bomb Hanoi") was glue-backed and is rarely found intact, clean with the print over the glue, readable and not sticking to the content-pages. Our copy has the front cover free, but the back cover is stuck at the bottom over a very small area and is fairly clean. (Allen - Artists' Magazines. An alternative space for art, p. 298)

Complete collection of the avant-garde periodical edited by David Antin & Jerome Rothenberg.

This issue, 'Vietnam Assemblage' includes texts by Allen Ginsberg, Charles Bukowski, Paul Blackburn, Rochelle Owens and many others but 'is not an anthology of individual & numbered pieces on a single theme. It was compiled with the help of many hands, & in a special sense it is a communal effort - an overall structure made up of words, a language trap to close-with a state, a process, a system - something afflicting & evading all of us' (editor's note). No. 1: cover by Amy Mendelson; No. 2: cover sculpture by Robert Morris; No. 4/5 cover by George Maciunas. Other contributors include: Anselm Hollo, Ted Berrigan, Jackson Mac Low, Carolee Schneemann (No 2 features photos and text from Carolee Schneemann's "Meat Joy" performance).
