[New York: New York Institute for the Humanities], 2003. First Edition. Softcover. Fine. 176 pp., profusely illustrated (mostly in color). Original color pictorial wrappers. Minor shelfwear, else fine. Prototype, printed for private distribution, of Lawrence Weschler and company's prospective journal of writing and visual culture, lamentably never published beyond this issue. With contributions by Ricky Jay, Jamaica Kinkaid, Oliver Sacks, Anne Hollander, Errol Morris, and thirty more writers, artists, editors, and designers, all working for the protoype issue as a labor of love. Weschler begins his introduction to the volume with a note on its first working title: "'Pillow of Air' perfectly describes the reigning aesthetic of the enterprise... in that it invokes those moments of hushed astonishment or absorption when a pillow of air seems to lodge itself in your mouth and you suddenly notice that you haven't taken a breath in a good half minute. The sort of experience where you get lost to yourself… Read more

Description:
[Cleveland]: [Printed by B. & R. Printing Co. for] B√©rmunk√°s, [1932]. First Separate Edition. Softcover. Very good. 16 pp. Pictorial wrappers, saddle-stapled. Later inscriptions in Agnes Inglis's hand (see below) on p. [1] noting pamphlet as gift from John Zara to the Labadie Collection. Lower-outer corner bumped, wrappers lightly worn. Very good. A talk, "Technocracy or Industrial Unionism," delivered on Cleveland's West Side for the local Hungarian arm of the I.W.W. by one of its members. The author, Andor Wiener (printed in the pamphlet in the Hungarian style, with surname first), presents the new Technocracy movement of Howard Scott et al., which advocated the replacement of price system-based forms of economy and government with industrial systems designed and maintained by scientists and engineers. Wiener supports the general theories of the Technocrats and belief that their proposed system could successfully replace capitalism in the industrial world but argues that the ideas will remain… Read more

Description:
New York: [Privately published], 1995. First Edition. Softcover. Fine. 11 x 8 1/2 inches. [4] leaves (printed recto only). Red printed wrappers, side stapled. Original horizontal fold, else fine. Three New York City-based concretist poems by Eli Wilentz (1918-1995), photocopied from his own manuscripts and privately issued by his family on the occasion of his death. Wilentz founded the legendary Eighth Street Bookshop with his brother Ted in 1947 and owned and operated it until 1979. It was a center of the Beat scene in the 1950s and 1960s - "the very hearthside of hip, the cynosure of cool," as the NEW YORK TIMES called it in Wilentz's obituary. The shop provided a critical meeting space in New York to struggling poets and avant-garde authors, a daring commitment to stocking paperback books and mimeo publications, and, eventually, a publishing arm, Corinth Books. Wilentz had major interests in sculpture, architecture, and the literary geography of New York City, all of which… Read more
