A Complete Facsimile. Ecstatic Peace Library, 2016. ISBN: 978-0-9972850-5-5. Flexi-bound cover, Swiss-bound, 800 pages. Musics was published, from 1975 to 1979, by musicians and artists on the London scene of free improvisation, focusing on the most innovative participants of their generation.Musics was a blueprint for the interdisciplinary activities of sound art, field recording, free improvisation, live electronics, 20th century composition & audio culture. It came out six times a year and ran for twenty-three hand-assembled issues. The journal covered improvised and non-western music alongside performance art, reflecting the broad interests of the so-called “second generation” of London’s improvisers, and provided a convivial focus point. Overlapping with the london musicians’ collective (lmc), the publication first launched in Spring of 1975, with the tagline: an impromental experivisation arts magazine and a manifesto that proposed the destruction of artificial boundaries, and linked Free Jazz, the academic ministrations of John Cage, Cornelius Cardew and K. Stockhausen and indigenous and non-European music. Musics was significant in the discussion of traditional Asian instruments as paths of equal value for the performance of musics.

NEW HARDCOVERFarrar, Straus and Giroux / 2016 / 384 pages / ISBN 0374151326(See also, the simultaneous publication: SERIOUS BIDNESS: THE LETTERS OF RICHARD BELLAMY)A man with a preternatural ability to find emerging artists, Richard Bellamy was one of the first advocates of pop art, minimalism, and conceptual art. The founder and director of the fabled Green Gallery on Fifty-Seventh Street, the witty, poetry-loving art lover became a legend of the avant-garde, showing the work of artists such as Mark di Suvero, Claes Oldenburg, James Rosenquist, Donald Judd, and others.Based on decades of research and hundreds of interviews with artists, friends, dealers, and lovers, Judith Stein's Eye of the Sixties recovers the elusive Bellamy and tells the story of a counterculture that became the mainstream.

NEW HARDCOVEREdited and with an introduction by Miles Bellamy.Brooklyn, NY: Near Fine Press; Printed by Small Editions, Red Hook. 72 pages, cloth. ISBN 978-0-692-51867-0. Two facsimiles, three photographic illustrations.This selection of twenty-two letters written by the renowned art dealer Richard Bellamy (1927-1998) highlights his great sensitivity to the needs of the artists he represented, his special brand of humor and his literary predilections. The letters cover the year 1965, when he closed the Green Gallery — a showcase for many who would become the most important artist of the second half of the 20th century — to the last weeks of his life in 1998.Included are letters to art collectors and patrons such as Virginia Wright, Vera List and A. Alfred Taubman, and letters concerning the artists Mark di Suvero, Walter De Maria and Yayoi Kusama, among others. There are also four letters written to his son, Miles Bellamy which draw a kind of narrative of their relationship. Miles Bellamy’s introduction and notes expound on that relationship and describe the contexts in which all the letters were written. Appended to the main text are Richard Bellamy’s essay on the painter Myron Stout, the only previously published writing by the dealer, as well as documentation of a posthumous reading of Bellamy’s letters at the New School in October, 1998.

HARDCOVER.A strange a mysterious document of seniors [?], graduates [?] - it is not explicitly stated - of Manhattan's all-female Finch College. Black and white images throughout, with only a brief introduction by Dr. John H.B. Knowlton, thus: "While the visual aspect of our world still matters -- the sudden regard of a face, the apprehension of some everyday object, or simply the conflict or consonance of two colors -- while these things hold the impossibility of drama, that drama will demand its stage and its actors...the traffic that crosses this stage has its own life and volition whether it bears human faces or only the diagrams of anxiety or rapture." We suppose the young women featured here are the "traffic' to which he refers. 84 pages. Cloth quarto with wear to edges. Scarce. Further images available upon request.
NEW SOFTCOVEROriginally published by Siegelaub/Wendler in 1968. Republished by Roma in December 2015 on the occasion of the exhibition Seth Siegelaub: Beyond Conceptual Art at the Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam.
NEW SOFTCOVERCurator, writer and dealer Seth Siegelaub (1941–2013) is legendary for his promotion of Conceptual art in New York in the 1960s and ‘70s. Acknowledging the unusual scope and essentially unclassifiable nature of his manifold interests and activities, this volume shows how Siegelaub’s projects and collections are underpinned by a deeper concern with printed matter and lists as ways of disseminating ideas. The book’s chapters explore the various facets of and connections in Siegelaub’s work, from his groundbreaking projects with Conceptual artists and his research and publications on mass media and communications theories to his interest in handwoven textiles and non-Western fabrics. It also highlights his collecting activity, which culminates in a unique ensemble of books on the social history of textiles and a textile collection comprising over 750 items from around the world.
