Description:
[New York]: Uranian Press, 1962. First Edition. Broadside. Near fine. Baer, Dorothy [Tyler]. [ca. 1962]. Broadside, approximately 6½ x 5½ inches. Printed in red on green paper. Embossed with seal of Uranian Press in lower margin. Signatures of Dorothea Baer and Richard O. Tyler over rubber stamps of their monograms on verso. Faint toning at bottom edge, else fine. Small Uranian press broadside of the ancient Christian symbol of the fish, in a decorative border, signed in the print by Dorothea Baer Tyler with her "d.b.t." monogram. The caption prints, "ICHTHUS," the Greek word for fish, as an acronym for the Greek words for "Jesus Christ, Son of God, Saviour." No date is provided for the print, but circa 1962 is likely; that year, "ichthus" was also printed on the cover of the Uranian Press's 1962 portfolio, 9 GNOSTIC TRACTS (there, in Greek letters), in red on green paper. Dorothea Baer Tyler frequently alternated, as she does here between the initials in the print and those in her monogram on the… Read more

Description:
[Detroit]: The Glass Bell Press, 1974. First Separate Edition. Broadside. Fine. Broadside, 11 x 8 inches, printed on pale green paper. Fine. First separate edition of this portion of Ellen Bass's longer poem, "Japanese Notebooks," which was published a year earlier in her first collection of poetry, I'M NOT YOUR LAUGHING DAUGHTER. In 1973, Bass also co-published (with Florence Howe) NO MORE MASKS!, one of the first major anthologies of 20th-century women's poetry. Detroit's Glass Bell Press published poems by women from 1974 to 1979, largely in broadside form. In 1975, Glass Bell printed 10 broadsides for the portfolio collection, TEN MICHIGAN WOMEN POETS. The present broadside is one of nine Glass Bell printed in 1974 for which we have found records, but it remains unclear whether the 1974 broadside were intended or issued as a collection. Scarce, with OCLC locating one copy, at Brown University.

Description:
[London]: Lowndes, Printer, [1808]. First Edition. Broadside. Fine. Broadside, approximately 11 1/2 x 8 1/2 inches, untrimmed. Portion of bottom line of text unprinted. Small remnants of paper tape on verso, else fine. Broadside advertising the twelfth performance of the opera, KAIS, OR, LOVE IN THE DESERTS, at Drury Lane, starring and produced by the renowned English tenor, John Braham. John Braham (ca. 1774-1856) rose from poverty and orphanhood in London to the heights of European opera, where he celebrated as one of the great voices of his age. As a British Jew, he also represented a major shift in Jewish status and social potential in the late Georgian era, becoming not only an artist of acclaim but also eventually the father-in-law of several English aristocrats. KAIS was based on the ancient Arabian love story of Layla and Majnun, which had been adapted into a famous work by Persian Poet Nizami Ganjavi in the 12th century, which in turn became the source for numerous later poets… Read more

One of 700 unnumbered copies (of a total of 726) printed for Angel Hair Books by Chapel Press in Williamstown, Massachusetts. First edition of Brainard's celebrated prose-poem memoir. In 2001, Paul Auster called it a "masterpiece": "One by one, the so-called important books of our time will be forgotten, but Joe Brainard's modest little gem will endure. In simple, forthright, declarative sentences, he charts the map of the human soul and permanently alters the way we look at the world. I REMEMBER is both uproariously funny and deeply moving. It is also one of the few totally original books I have ever read.” Clay and Phillips, p. 179.
