Burroughs, William:
New York: ?"C?" Press. 1965. First edition. One of 10 lettered copies. Hardbound by the publisher in yellow, black and red patterned cloth and containing an original tissue guarded Burroughs manuscript page and an original artwork by Brion Gysin. Signed by Burroughs and Gysin twice (Once on their manuscript and original artwork page and again on the title underneath the stamped limitation statement). Four printed artworks by Brion Gysin. A fine copy. The work is a simulation of Time magazine, which included four of Gysin's drawings slipped into the Time layout and is one of Burroughs' earliest examples to merge the collage technique of art with the cut up technique of literature. It is the fullest expression of Burroughs' experimentation with the newspaper and magazine format that is part parody, and part critique as well as an expression of a new format and form capable of expressing a greater truth than fiction or journalism separately. Time goes to the heart of Burroughs' distrust of the mass media manipulation of image and news. The publication serves as confirmation of Burroughs early experiments with the visual arts and expresses elements of surrealism; the collage and assemblage art of Rauschenberg or Wallace Berman and his circle, Pop Art, and Mail Art are also all present in Time. The copy is letter G of the 10 copies lettered A - J, all of which were hardbound and issued with an original manuscript page collage by Burroughs and an original artwork by Gysin. A stellar copy of this important work. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available … [Click Below for Full Description]
