        newspaper #8

      New York: Jack Green, nd [ca. 1959]. First Edition. Wraps. Good. Tall 4to. Top-stapled legal-sized mimeo. Heavily toned. Fairly brittle. Folded in half with some splitting at the fold. Good. [8]. One of the rarest and more unusual journals of the mimeo revolution, Newspaper published 15 issues between 1957 and 1965. Best remembered today for almost single-handedly establishing the reputation of William Gaddis' THE RECOGNITIONS through Green's thorough and devestating deconstruction of the novel's negative reviews (originally published in Newspaper 12-14, reprinted as FIRE THE BASTARDS in 1992), as well as (most infamously) his 1962 full-page ad in the Village Voice extolling the work's virtues. "[P]art conceptual art, part political tract, and part 'zine [...] 'Green' [a psuedonym] used his underground tabloid for cultural commentary and deliciously satirical (yet superbly well-documented) assaults" (Clay and Phillips p. 77). This issue is comprised of a seven-page story penned by Green on his experiences with Peyote, and a single page of selections by Luigi Pirandello, printed in the Italian and translated. A very fragile production of which not many survived.

        Cortège.

      Paris: Pierre Lecuire, 1959. Folio. (28)pp., + 23 plates. From an edition of 170 copies, this is one of twenty-five deluxe copies with an additional suite of pochoir plates. Signed by the author/publisher and the artist below the colophon. Illustrated with twenty-three brightly colored pochoir plates, one of which is double-page, after paintings by André Lanskoy, executed by Maurice Beaufumé, who was responsible for Matisse's Jazz. Lanskoy was a Russian-born painter of the Tachism movement in Paris, where he lived and worked from 1921 until his death in 1976. Tachism, part of the larger Art Informel movement, focused on the intuitive and spontaneous expression of the artist. Cortège is true to form for Lanskoy and Tachism, with its richly colored and boldly arranged abstract shapes - Lanksoy's own interpretation of Lecuire's prose poem. At the time, Lecuire was still early in his career; this was only his fourth published work. Lecuire continued to publish illustrated poetic compositions through the 1980s. Major exhibitions of his work were organized at the French House in Oxford, England in 1977 and at the National Library of France in 2001. Lecuire died in 2013. Issued loose in a multi-colored pochoir wrapper designed by Lanskoy, and housed in a cloth chemise backed in lithographed patterned paper after a design in the book and a cloth slipcase. Visible offsetting from the pochoir, now mitigated by interleaved tissue; chemise and slipcase both show some rubbing and marking, and slipcase splitting at corners. A near fine copy.

        Les Possédés à la scène" (in : Les productions théâtrales Georges Herbert)

      ( - plaquette, [12] feuillets non Productions théâtrales Georges Herbert, (avril 1959), in-8, plaquette, [12] feuillets non paginés, comprenant de nombreux encarts publicitaires et portraits d'acteurs, broché, couverture rouge aujourée en forme de rideau ouvert sur le portrait de Pierre Blanchar, ENVOIS DE CAMUS ET DE BLANCHAR. Précieux exemplaire du livret-programme publié par les Productions théâtrales Georges Herbert, distribué à l'occasion de la représentation au théâtre Antoine des Possédés (les Démons), pièce en 3 actes d'Albert Camus, d'après le roman de Dostoievski, créée à la scène le 30 janvier 1959 : exemplaire doublement signé ; par Pierre Blanchar, interprète de Stépane Trophimovitch Verkhovensky, un "cordial souvenir" au-dessus de son portrait ; et par Albert Camus, en tête du court texte de présentation de la pièce, "Les Possédés à la scène" : "à Simon Ben Soussan, avec les pensées affectueuses". Camus introduit la pièce par "Les Possédés à la scène", texte d'une page dans lequel il explique sa confrontation à Dostoievski : "Pour porter [les Possédés] à la scène, il a fallu plusieurs années de travail et d'obstination". Près de deux décennies auparavant, en mai 1938, Camus avait porté sur scène une adaptation des Frères Karamazov avec sa troupe du théâtre de l'Équipe à Alger ; peut-être songeait-il déjà à cette période à adapter les Possédés ? "Il y a près de vingt ans que je m'en suis nourri et que je m'y suis formé". [Attributes: Hard Cover]
