Catalogue October 1977.

Many black & white illus. 40 unnumbered pages. Tall narrow 8vo (215 x 105 mm.), brown semi-stiff wrappers, title & date on spine. [New York: October 1977].

One of Printed Matter’s earliest mail-order catalogues and now scarce, issued within a year of the store’s founding. It lists hundreds of early artists’ books and publications, and many are illustrated. This is probably an inventory of the store’s entire stock.

It includes the works of Andre, Mel Bochner, Broodthaers, Brouwn, Buren, Marie Combs, Darboven, Constance de Jong, Mario Diacono, Helen Douglas (and Telfer Stokes), Hans Peter Feldmann, Robert Filliou, General Idea, Conrad Gleber, Dick Higgins, Jenny Holzer, Huebler, Robert Jacks, LeWitt, Joan Lyons, Gordon Matta-Clark, Mario Merz, Nauman, Pistoletto, Martha Rosler, Ruppersberg, Ruscha, Shafrazi, Alan Suicide, Dorothea Tanning, Richard Tuttle, Weiner, Rosemary Wright, Rachel Youdelman, etc., etc. At the end, records and periodicals are offered for sale.

Written on the final leaf: “For Everybody: Printed Matter is also a bookstore. Located in a ground floor storefront just below Canal Street on the dividing line between SoHo and Tribeca, we are open from noon to 6:00 P.M., Tuesday through Saturday. Come and browse, sit and read, ask questions, listen to records, soak up some culture – or some tea, after 4:00 P.M. You can see our ‘window shows’ anytime, from the street – pieces by a different book artist each month.”

In fine condition.
