Rothenberg, Jerome


Soft cover

Blue staple-bound printed wrappers. Some scratches to upper wrapper, otherwise fine. *** “A Great Bear Pamphlet.” First edition of this pamphlet. Two later editions exist. The second edition is almost identical to the first. It’s printed on a different type of paper, in a lighter shade of blue, with the bottom part of the text on lower wrapper in a smaller type. The third edition lists all twenty Great Bear pamphlets on lower wrapper. *** Originally published between 1965 and 1967, the Great Bear pamphlets, published by Something Else Press, were a compendium of the sixties avant-garde and included John Cage, Claes Oldenburg, Allan Kaprov and Jerome Rothenberg. Twenty were published in all.
