A scarce Printed Matter catalogue, this copy was mailed to the great dealer and scholar of art ephemera Steven Leiber, who frequently cited these catalogues in his own. It begins with an introduction by Amy Baker Sandback, a member of the Printed Matter Board of Directors. This is followed by an essay by the art critic Germano Celant (translated from the Italian) called “Artists’ Manifestos & Magazines.” Then offered are works by Daniel Buren, Tom Phillips, Dieter Roth, Telfer Stokes & Helen Douglas, Susan Baker, Olivia Clavel, Joyce Cutler-Shaw, Janet Skeels, Nannucci, Lucas Samaras, Buzz Spector, James Turrell, Janet Zweig, etc.

Most listings are illustrated along with concise descriptions and bibliographic information. The backlist presents the works of Kathy Acker, Dick Higgins, Louise Lawler, Richard Prince, Susan King, LeWitt, Claes Oldenburg, Ruscha, Mimi Smith, Andre, Beuys, Hanne Darboven, Douglas Huebler, Carolee Schneemann, Siegelaub, Sally Alatalo, Janet Geiser, Liz Rodriguez, Phyllis Galembo, Celia Jordan, Anne Turyn, Ellen Wallenstein, etc. The present catalogue concludes with new arrivals from Hawley Hussey, Hamish Fulton, Antonio Muntadas, Prince, Arthur Tress, and Silvia Ziranek.

Fine copy; label with Leiber’s address on lower wrapper. Cover with an illustration by Tom Phillips.
