THE FLOATING BEAR A NEWSLETTER
New York, Kerhonkson, etc. 1961 through 1971.. New York, Kerhonkson, etc. 1961 through 1971.. Whole numbers 6, 10, 16, 20, 21, 22, 23, 26, 27, 28, 30, 34, 35, and 38, of thirty-eight numbers published. Fourteen issues. Quarto. Stapled, mimeographed typescript, some of the later issues accompanied by decorated or pictorial wrappers. Many issues folded for mailing, and showing signs of postal use, six issues (addressed to Dan Rice) rather heavily used, some occasional annotations, discolorations or marginal tanning, but in the main, a good lot. Edited by Diane Di Prima and Leroi Jones (by Di Prima alone after #26, with various guest editors). A highly important forum of poetry, and absolutely essential to the literary history of the era, THE FLOATING BEAR was conceived and distributed among fellow poets and friends as a means for the speedy transmission of works and ideas. The roster of contributors consists of a broad range of the most important young writers of the time. The distribution of FLOATING BEAR ranged from 117 to 1250 copies over its lifetime, though purely anecdotal bookselling tradition has maintained that issue number 24 was issued in a particularly small number of copies. Issue 38 is the joint INTREPID/BEAR number. This modest lot, consisting of tailings from several complete runs assembled in recent years, includes issues addressed to several different parties, including Dan Rice and Corinth Books. ANDERSON & KINZIE, p.699-700.
