FLOATING BEAR: A Newsletter, Nos. 2-38 [A Near-Complete Run/Set, Tuli Kupferberg's Copies]
The Floating Bear 1961-1971, New York and San Francisco - Original top- or side-stapled 8.5" x 11" mimeograph wraps. Toning, light wear. Usual mailing marks. Occasional chipping and tearing. Generally very good. Whole numbers 2 through 38, a near complete run (lacking only nos. oone, eleven, and thirty-three) of this seminal publication of the Mimeo Revolution and one of the most influential little magazines of the 1960's. Distributed by mailing list, FB served as an important venue for the poets of the Beat and New York schools, as well as other experimental and avant garde writers of the decade: Ginsberg, Olson, Burroughs, O'Hara, Dorn, Creeley, Duncan, Wieners, Ashbery, etc. From issue 28 on includes pictorial covers by artists such as Ray Johnson, Michael Bowen, Jess, George Hermas, Wallace Berman, and others. Includes the rare issue #24. A landmark of the mimeo form, as important to the movement as Sander's FU or Berrigan's "C," and a monumental association: Tuli Kupferberg's copies, with most issues addressed to him either by hand or with mailing label (and one issue with a brief holograph note to Kupferberg from Di Prima). The late great poet, musician, editor and publisher was of course Fug bandmates with FU publisher Ed Sanders. In addition, Kupferberg published Di Prima and Jones in his own little magazine of the period, BIRTH. An intimate of the mimeo crowd and the Lower East Side scene from which it grew, one of the most desirable sets we could imagine. [Clay and Phillips pp. 74-75]. [Anderson and Kinzie 699-700]. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
