The series closely paralleled the European shows being produced by George Maciunas of his newly developing Fluxus movement, which itself was inspired the Dadaist. The Chambers Street shows led Maciunast to invite Ono to join his fledgling group and helped coalesce the various artists that would become the core members of Fluxus.

The 20-part performance features works written by Mac Low between January 1955 and March 1961 and with performance contributions from Young, Ichiyanagi, Diane Wakoski, Simone Morris, Joseph Byrd, Robert Dunn, Shimon Tamari, C.V.J. Anderson, Spencer Holst, Joan and Robert Kelly, Iris Lezak, and John Perreault. A wonderful piece of ephemera from this concert series that contributed to the emergence of the Fluxus movement. .

Near fine in a near fine dust jacket with light shelfwear.

His use of distortion through trick lenses and multiple exposures is part of the Weegee-trademark, but it is also an artful glimpse into Weegee's perception of the underlying themes of Hollywood profiling. Ultimately, Weegee's work can be seen as a noirish glance into the urban life of the early Twentieth Century, while his autobiography is an insight into the behind that glance [Attributes: First Edition; Signed Copy; Hard Cover]

The correct first edition issued in only a miniscule printing of 209 copies, of which none were offered for sale. Copies were given to descendants of John D. Lee as well as to friends of the publisher and author. Blue cloth, blue foil stamping on spine and rules, top edge stained blue, 404 pp., frontis. [portrait of John Doyle Lee], introduction, illustrated, plates, portraits, bibliographical note, index. AHC 35 says, "This biography received an award of merit from the Association for State and Local History upon publication. Lee was the only man convicted of perpetrating the Mountain Meadows Massacre. His detailed diaries of his life in southern Utah, before and after the massacre, were edited by Brooks and published by the Huntington Library. The diary for the period of the massacre has never been released by the L.D.S. archives." Brooks was a niece of LeRoy Hafen, and an extremely competent scholar, friend of Dale Morgan, and indefatigable searcher of the truth. She faced considerable criticism within the Mormon Church, of which she remained a devout member, as a result of her scholarly writings. Juanita Brooks grew up in southern Utah and learned of the infamous massacre of 1857 through vague rumors and whispered stories. She was determined to learn the truth about the Mountain Meadows Massacre and eventually published her masterpiece, THE MOUNTAIN MEADOWS MASSACRE in 1950. This led to a lifelong interest in John D. Lee, and her two subsequent major publications: the massive two volume DIARIES OF JOHN D. LEE, published in 1955 by the Huntington Library, and this full length biography of Lee, first published in 1961.

      The Japan Council Against the A and H Bombs, Tokyo 1961 - np + 54pp, profusely illustrated in duotone. Text in English. Designed by Kohei Sugiura. In protective clear acetate dustwrappers. This is Ken Domon and Shomei Tomatsu's remarkable book of photographs reflecting the aftermath of the atomic bombs the US dropped on The Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki to hasten the end World War II. In addition to the gripping hardbound volume of images, it contains a second English language publication in wrappers reprinting scholarly articles by Kiyoshi Sakuma, Nobuo Kusano, Toshio Hata on the radiation and its effects. A serviceable example only of this remarkable Post-War Japanese photographic book lacking the publisher's slipcase, and whose primary volume's off-white exterior is browned along the spine, moderately soiled, and exhibits notable insect damage to the ink of its decorative design of concentric circles. Internally it is bright and sound, with the textblock lightly browned along the edges and pulling ever so slightly at the signatures. The paper text volume shows some overall wear, light browning and soiling to the covers and edges, cracking along the spine, and a small closed tear to the foredge corner of the front cover. It has been priced accordingly. PLEASE NOTE: Additional shipping costs are required for this item beyond our standard rates due to its weight and value - we will inform you of the applicable amount at time of purchase.
