The first issue (of a likely 2 total published), 8 pp., of the somewhat tongue-in-cheek Queercore hate zine, under the editorial direction of filmmaker Johnny Noxzema (John Richard Allen), targeting heterosexism, straight people, and "mainstream" gays and lesbians, and attacking the heteronormative American nuclear family. Illustrated throughout with drawings, collages, and reproductions from photographs. Photomechanically reproduced. Some very mild wear and toning. Tall 8vo.

(Society for Cutting Up Men), S.C.A.B. lays out their intent clearly in hateful, violent language: "Our goal? The absolute obliteration of what is generally regarded as the American nuclear family. Our method? Violence, pornography, abortions, castration, mindless sex, mass murder, and the widespread destruction of private and state property." In the October 1991 issue of Maximum Rock 'n' Roll, reviewer K.O. called S.C.A.B. "the most hateful thing I've ever seen in my life." The final page contains the words, "Kill a man and you impress a few people who already believe anyway. Kill a multitude and you can convince a nation."

C'est presque un programme. Le barbare, c'est Lui, ce loufoque impérial qui depuis longtemps nous fait voir ses excentricités; ce cabotin de bas étage qui s'affuble de mille costumes différents...Malheureux déséquilibré dont le costume le meilleur serait une camisole de force!

With the slogan "facciamo che il tempo libero diventi tempo liberato", the festival attracted thousands. The second festival was held in Zerbo in June 1972, and in 1974 the festival moved to Milan for its third installment. Held over 4 days in June at Parco Lambro La "Festa", spectators witnessed acts such as PFM (Premiata Forneria Marconi), Perigeo, Alan Sorrenti, Battiato, Acqua Fragile, Biglietto per l'Inferno, The Trip, Il Volo, Loy e Altomare, Stormy Six, and Angelo Branduardi, among others. The final festival was held from June 26 to June 29, 1976, and was attended by more than 400,000 people.

Of Sugar Mountain Lewis Warsh has written, "Tom Clark and I edited the one-shot magazine Sugar Mountain in the spring of 1970. We were both living in Bolinas, California....Suddenly there was a poetry community....and Sugar Mountain reflects the beginning of it all. It was a kind of miracle for so many poets of different stripes (Black Mountain, Beat Generation, New York School, San Francisco Renaissance) to interact and collaborate on a daily level, dissolving the borders between life and poetry, and much of it had to do with the magic of Bolinas, situated on a fragile cliff overlooking the Pacific with the lights of San Francisco blinking in the distance....but by the end of the 1970s many of the poets had moved away." (Warsh, From a Secret Location, January 2017).

Front-Illustrierte: Für den Deutschen Soldaten. No. 7 (April 1942) through No. 91/92 (December 1944)

Altogether 26 issues of 97 total published, most 4 pp. each, of the illustrated Soviet propaganda leaflet, distributed aerially over German-held territories from 1941 to 1945, reporting on catastrophic losses at the Eastern Front and urging German soldiers to surrender, with reproductions of grim photographs of violence and privation, often juxtaposed with images of the comforts of home, notable for its striking photomontages and typographic design, and including caricatures of Hitler and German generals. Paper size varied, some trimmed, most offset in various color halftones with red highlights, some scattered toning and creasing as expected, slight rubbing, No. 58 with a taped repair. 4to. Original illustrated self-wrpps. N.p. (Moscow?) 1942-1944. The present grouping is an extremely rare collection of this scarce, irregularly published Soviet propaganda serial, known only in three partial holdings in North America. Front-Illustrierte was perhaps the most ambitious aerial propaganda series of WWII, maintaining its distinctive layout and almost exclusive use of photomontage over four years and close to 100 issues. The dramatic slogans promise misery and death to the Germans while the startling and sophisticated illustrations are evidence of the ongoing importance of Russian avantgarde iconography in Soviet art and its convincing repurposing as enemy propaganda toward an audience familiar with the visual techniques of international modernism. The photomontages were almost all the work of a single artist, Alexander Zhitomirsky, previously an art director for Illustrirovannaya Gaseta, the weekly illustrated supplement to Pravda. Zhitomirsky's compositions are a compelling combination of Constructivist devices no longer in use in Western Europe in the 1940s and the photomontage strategies practiced so successfully by John Heartfield in Arbeiter Illustrierte Zeitung [AIZ]. Zhitomirsky was strongly influenced by Heartfield (in fact, the name of Front Illustrierte Zeitung was deliberately chosen to echoed AIZ), and his work was later praised by Heartfield during a 1961 Berlin retrospective arranged to commemorate the legendary photographer's 70th birthday. (See Konstantin Akinsha, The Second Life of Soviet Photomontage, 1935-1980s, PhD diss., University of Edinburgh, 2012, pp. 249-279.).

Lynx: Anmerkungen zu Politik und Literatur. No. 1 (March 1960) through No. 32 (Winter 1966/67) (all published)

A complete run of 32 issues bound in 2 volumes of the German literary and political journal, each issue approx. 16-30 pp., edited by Georg Borchardt and Wolfgang Beutin, the journal's publication coming on the heels of anti-semitic scandals, a wave of anti-semitic graffiti, and accompanying protests by students and university professors, and containing essays and writings on neo-Fascism, the cultural traditions of the Nazi era in Germany, anti-Militarism, rearmament, Socialism, and other timely topics. Indices, tables of contents. Not illustrated. Hectographic reproductions on paper. 4to. Red cloth. Hamburg 1960-1967. The initial inspiration for Lynx was born out of the ignoring by the "Verband Deutscher Tonkünstler und Musiklehrer (VDTM)" of the anniversaries of prominent Jewish composers, including Mahler and Mendelssohn, following a Nazi-instilled anti-Semitic tradition. The 1960's were an important time in Germany for a change in the previously dominant anti-Semitic attitudes, and this new outlook was helped along by the Eichmann and Auschwitz trials. Lynx was published alongside these important changes in the country, ceasing publication just before the events of 1968. The journal has been called one of the harbingers of the protests and revolts which took place that year. Contributors to Lynx included Joseph Baur, Eugen Brehm, Albrecht Barfod, Jürgen Busack, Werner Dietzel, Manfred Leier, Georg Burckhardt, David Luschnat, Ruprecht Großman, Dietrick Stahlbaum, Juan Allende-Blin, Harald Hartung, Peter Schütt, Dieter Schumacher, Karlheinz Deschner, and Hans Wollschläger, among others.
