Three Oaks, MI: Sally Alatalo, 2018. First printing. 27 pp., 7.75 x 11.75 inches. Sewn into printed wrappers. Illustrated in color throughout. Digitally printed in a small but unspecified edition. New. This prospectus examines plastic containers of the early twenty-first century that are commonly found in domestic environments of the North American Midwest—primarily those employed in the distribution of food, foodstuffs, beverages, personal care products and household cleaning products—to model various methods of collection, classification and organization. Modeled on the concepts and techniques of nineteenth-century herbaria (and their modern extensions), Plasticarium Prospectus is both an artistÂ’s book and a genuine proposal for a far-reaching project — if any adventurous trade publishers happen to be reading this, please take note — just as it is simultaneously dead serious and tongue-in-cheek. Chapters are devoted to Classification, the Herbarium Specimen as Model, Digital Images as… Read more

Los Angeles: re: public/UpSet Press, 2013. First Edition, First Printing. Paperback. New. 315 pp., small 8vo. Sewn signatures glued into photo-illustrated wrappers. With notes, list of works consulted, and index. Edited with a preface by Fred Dewey. A stunning book of essays; in the words of the editor: "A Little History is a rich work of discovery, recovery, and response whose purpose is to dig, to find, and to preserve. The lectures that provided a beginning for the heart of the book -- investigating international politics through the lens formed by the work and choices of Gloucester poet and thinker Charles Olson -- were delivered at Cornell in 2002 and at Poet's House in New York City in 2004. While the consequence of these talks, delivered by poet, translator, critic, and scholar Ammiel Alcalay, has percolated out -- through public events, a web site, and Alcalay's crucial Lost & Found chapbook series at CUNY's Graduate Center, recovering lost works -- the original thinking has existed, until… Read more

Description:
New York: Grove Press, 1960. First printing. 454 pp., 5.5 x 8.25 inches. Cloth over boards, lacking dust-jacket. Spine lightly sunned; very mild bumps to corners; slight soiling to edges; nonetheless a clean and solid very good copy. From the library of Fran Herndon. The landmark anthology that brought the alternative and underground streams of midcentury American poetry to a wide audience for the first time, and that gave a umbrella name to the myriad postwar manifestations of nonacademic poetry. Allen gathered representative selections from forty-four poets, which he organized into five loose (and later much challenged) geographical groupings: Black Mountain (Charles Olson, Robert Duncan, Denise Levertov, Paul Blackburn, Robert Creeley, Paul Carroll, Larry Eigner, Edward Dorn, Jonathan Williams, Joel Oppenheimer); the San Francisco Renaissance (Helen Adam, Brother Antoninus, James Broughton, Madeline Gleason, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Robin Blaser, Jack Spicer, Lew Welch, Richard Duerden, Philip… Read more

Hovikodden, Norway: Henie Onstad Kunstsenter, 2001. First printing. 63 pp., 9.5 x 9.5 inches. Perfect-bound in printed card covers. Text in Norwegian and English. Illustrated in color throughout. Very light shelfwear, otherwise as new. Born in Cairo and raised in Paris, Ghada Amer lives and works in New York. Best known for her embroidered works on canvas, many of which deal with issues of gender and sexuality, her output also notably includes installations, works on paper, and other media. This monograph served as the catalogue for a traveling exhibition, and includes an essay, “Reading between the Threads,” by curator Selene Wendt, and excerpts from a conversation with the artist, “Unscripted Desire,” by Valerie Casell. “The submission of women to the tyranny of domestic life, the celebration of female sexuality and pleasure, the incomprehensibility of love, the foolishness of war and violence, and an overall quest for formal beauty, constitute the territory that she explores and expresses in… Read more
