Ray Johnson
The Paper Snake (The Limited Edition--With Artwork and Additional Ephemera)
The Something Else Press. Ray Johnson. Boards. The February 1965 limited edition, purportedly of 197 copies. In its rich-blue, patterned boards, this is a distinctly different binding from the pictorial cloth of the trade edition. Furthermore, this copy includes an original piece of Ray Johnson art, a 7" strip of collage (with thin striped paper running vertically against a deep blue), contained within an envelope fastened to the front pastedown. The book itself is clean and very presentable as well. Tight and Near Fine in a crisp, price-intact, VG+ dustjacket, with light chipping --and just a touch of very lght creasing-- along the panel edges. Oblong quarto, also includes 3 laid-in 8 1/2"x11" "Sample Pages" of "The Paper Snake", all distinct from each other and each a reproduction of a page from the book. Near Fine / Very Good +. [Attributes: First Edition; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: appledore_books [Waccabuc, New York, United States]
