Brian Cassidy, Bookseller, Catalog No. One.

40 items, from a New York School anthology to Louis Zukofsky, with a number of interesting association items. The catalog includes a well-researched batch of material (a typed letter and a typed manuscript from William Burroughs sent to Allen Ginsberg in 1969), priced $25,000, and a presentation copy of John Cage’s Silence (Middlebury, Conn., 1963), inscribed to ellsworth snyder and additionally signed by David Tudor ($4,000). For somebody like me, whose attention to American literature tends to flag once we reach an era where Richard Griffin has faded from the scene, the catalogue still made for entertaining and informative reading.
