        ORIGINAL HAPPENINGS EVENT FLYER ILLUSTRATED BY RED GROOMS FOR THE JANUARY 1960 "HAPPENINGS AT THE REUBEN GALLERY", featuring "Fireman's Dream" by Red Grooms, "The Big Laugh" by Allan Kaprow, and "Small Cannon" by Robert Whitman.

      New York: Reuben Gallery, (1959). (1959) - - sc - An original 17 inch high by 12 inch wide black & white flyer designed and illustrated by Red Grooms for the series of Happenings which took place at Reuben Gallery from January 8 through the 11th, 1960 and the overlapping exhibition of Red Grooms' works displayed at the gallery from January 9 through the 28th of that year. One half of the flyer lists the 3 performance art events scheduled for the evenings of January 8th through the 11th, boldly titled in facsimile of the artist's handwriting within a heavy black frame. Illustrated with what appears to be an arm reaching out for a ball at the left of the frame. "Happenings at the Reuben Gallery: Art in a New Medium produced before a seated audience" is additionally printed in type within the frame, and the dates and relevant information is printed along the bottom: "4 evenings January 8.9.10, 11 at 8:30 p.m. Admission by Advance Reservation Only / Write: Reuben Gallery 61 Fourth Avenue N.Y.C. 3 N.Y. Phone OR-41136 min. contrib. $1.50". Depicted upside down on the other half of the sheet is a bold black & white illustration of one of Red Groom's paintings of a man in a wide brimmed hat reaching out with his hand, the whole heavily scribbled out with bold black lines in Grooms inimitable style with the words "Red Grooms Jan 9 - Jan 28" boldly written at left of the image. The sheet is folded twice horizontally and once vertically for mailing. It is addressed in ink to "Brata" on the verso with Reuben Gallery's return address and a 1959 postmarked US postage stamp. The flyer is soiled with creases to the edges, several pinholes to two of the corners, a short tear along the edge of one fold and some damage and rough short tears to the left edge not affecting the text. A bold powerful event flyer. The event flyer advertised performances of Red Grooms' "Fireman's Dream" (later titled "The Magic Train Ride"), Allan Kaprow's "The Big Laugh", and Robert Whitman's "Small Cannon" in addition to an exhibition of Red Grooms' art work.A rare event flyer for an early "happening", a term coined by Allan Kaprow to describe these early performance art events.The art exhibit held in conjunction with the performances was Red Grooms first solo show.The flyer is addressed to the Brata gallery, located at 89 E. 10th street, which was itself significant as one of the 10th Street galleries that operated co-operatively in Manhattan's East Village. These artist run galleries operated on low budgets were the avant-garde alternative to the conservative 57th Street galleries.In its short life (October 1959 to April 1961), the Reuben Gallery, founded by Anita Reuben as "an outpost for human image in a sea of Abstract Expressionism", helped launch the careers of many of the important artists of the period. George Brecht, Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg, and George Segal were among the many modern artists whose works were exhibited by the Reuben.In a 2012 article published by The New York Times about the Pace Gallery's exhibition entitled "Happenings: New York, 1958-1963" Red Grooms states that "All of us were painters or makers of something. I guess we all had a knack for doing something theatrical, and there was a certain sort of movement in painting at that time. Pollock was a prime influence." and further describes his work "I was enamored with all sorts of theater-- circuses, carnivals, ice shows, things on television. In high school assemblies I would do skits; I'd come out in a tutu and do a pratfall. So my Happenings were physical as well. In all of them I played this character called the Pasty Man, who would come out from behind the curtain with this candle."RARE. [No copies found in WorldCat]. [Attributes: Soft Cover]

        KRAPP’S LAST TAPE and EMBERS

      London: Faber & Faber. 1959. First edition, first printing. Original card covers. INSCRIBED by the author, ?"For Pat Magee / In friendship / Sam. Beckett / Paris Xmas / 1959?". Very much his working copy with underlining and various inscriptions / diagrams in Magee?'s hand. From the condition, one could assume that he carried it around in his back pocket for the 20 years following presentation, the covers are loose, chipped and worn but the pages are generally clean and without tears. Housed in purpose-made quarter black morocco solander box by The Chelsea Bindery. Patrick Magee, an Irish actor renowned for his stage work in plays by Pinter and Beckett and films including A Clockwork Orange had not yet met Samuel Beckett in early 1958, when Beckett began a short piece (running to little more than ten minutes in performance) with the working title ?'The Magee Monologue?'. Beckett had heard a recording of a radio performance of All That Fall and embarked on a piece written specifically for Magee. The piece would be re-titled Krapp?'s Last Tape and Beckett and Magee would become lifelong collaborators, friends and drinking companions; the dedication of this copy, from the author to the actor for whom the part, and piece, was written, marks the beginning of that professional and personal relationship. A landmark copy of one of the most significant plays of the twentieth century.

        [An Archive of Letters from Director Robert Lewis re: Her Work on Adapting CHÉRI]

      London, Liverpool, etc. 14 January through 14 April 1959.. Nine autograph letters, signed ('Billy' or 'B'), 20 pages, octavo; two autograph notes, signed; two autograph postcards, signed. Each bearing the rubberstamp "From The Estate of Anita Loos," but very good. A good and affectionate sequence of letters from Lewis to Loos, who was then engaged in the adaptation of Colette's CHÉRI and THE LAST OF CHÉRI to the stage. Lewis directed Kim Stanley and Horst Buchholz in the play during its two month run at the Morosco Theatre. Through much of period of the correspondence, Lewis is partially preoccupied with rehearsals and the opening for his current production in London (Hellman and Bernstein's CANDIDE, which opened in London in April), but while pressed for time, focuses too on his reading of Loos's drafts in progress, meetings with potential cast members and negotiations with Buchholz, his own conceptions of the stage presentation, and other nuts and bolts issues. His letters anticipate his return to New York in May, "when we can then go right into collaboration ...." Accompanied by typed transcripts of three of the letters, a copy of PLAYBILL for the production, and a catalogue for an exhibition drawing on Lewis's papers at Kent State, 1991-2. Lewis (1909- 1997) was a founding member of the Group Theatre, founder of the Actors Studio, and eventually became Chairman of the Yale Acting and Directing departments in the 1970s.

        The Journal of Norman Lee, 1898 which is the account of a cattle-drive from the Chilcotin country to Teslin Lake by the Telegraph Trail

      Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada:: Robert and Felicity Reid,, 1959.. Edition of 100, 5 of which were bound in full leather.. 6.65 x 9.85", 58 pages. Set in Linotype Eldorado. Printed on English Eynsford Ancient Laid paper. Signed on colophon by Reid. Numbered. Bound in full leather by Claudia Cohen with gilt line accents as well as press device in gilt. Laid in cloth-covered clam shell box with marbled paper edges, leather title label on spine. Of the edition of 100, 5 of which were bound in full leather. This is one of those 5. The Journal of Norman Lee was the third in a series relating to the history of British Columbia by the Robert Reid press. Includes fold-out map and tip-ins of Lee's steamer ticket to New York, a letter to an aunt from San Francisco, and a sheet of poetical scribblings. "Reid's Leaves" (Heavenly Monkey, 2001), Robert Reid: "'We stumbled across the journal of Norman Lee listening to the radio - CBR at that time. Eileen Laurie was reading parts of it over the air, and it sounded perfect for our third B.C. historical publication. She had obtained it from Lee's younger brother, Edward Penrose Lee, along with letters and other documents. The journal had never been published and was a great find, well deserving of being printed on the British handmade Eynsford Ancient Laid paper that we had saved for just such a book." Heavenly Monkey Press: "Not all of the copies sent to Fritz Brunn were bound up (Reid estimates about three-quarters of the edition was actually issued). Bookseller Stephen Lunsford had 20 complete sets in 2003, which he, Reid and Heavenly Monkey publisher Rollin Milroy collaborated to issue. Rather than attempting to make these copies uniform with the original issue, an afterword was set and printed at Heavenly Monkey, as was an additional colophon that identified these copies as one of 20 issued in 2003 [i.e. 2006-8], signed by Reid. The sheets were sent to Claudia Cohen for binding: five were bound in full leather, and 15 in quarter leather, each with different marbled paper over boards. These copies were issued by Stephen Lunsford." This is copy #3 of 5 bound in full leather by Claudia Cohen.

As part of an advertising campaign presumably beginning in or about 1960, the cards were provided by Cia. Industrial Empacadora de Dulces, S.A. as premiums for the purchase of their canned fruit products for the children to collect in the book (also provided by the company). On this copy, the rear wrapper's verso contains a full page advertisement for Felices. An unusually Fine copy of this interesting piece of Cuban Revolutionary Propaganda for children.

Bertrand Russell won the 1950 Nobel Prize in Literature "in recognition of his varied and significant writings in which he champions humanitarian ideals and freedom of thought".
