Heliczer was one of the geniuses of the Mimeo Revolution, whose Dead Language Press produced some of the most beautiful objects of the movement.
Young was a central figure throughout the 1960s NYC music and literary scenes. He founded the Folklore Center, produced Dylan's first concert in 1961 (Dylan even wrote a song for/about him, "Talking Folklore Center"), and helped Ed Sanders to print several items from from his Fuck You Press on the mimeo machine at the Center. A decidedly uncommon book with a unique and unusual association.
(New York): (Dead Language Press), . Square 12mo. Stiff pink original printed pictorial wrappers (we've also seen this in orange wraps). Some minor rubbing and edge-wear. Touch of fading to spine and a few faint creases. Very good. pp. PROVENANCE: Izzy Young's copy, with his contemporary ownership in- scription to inside rear cover: "Israel G. Young, 2-28-66, from the author, and kissed by the author on the front cover." And indeed: SIGNED by Heliczer at his printed name to rear cover (Young was mistaken about this) and KISSED three times by him with red lipstick impressions to same. Young was a central figure throughout the 1960s NYC music and literary scenes. He founded the Folklore Center, produced Dylan's first concert in 1961 (Dylan even wrote a song for/about him, "Talking Folklore Center"), and was close to Sanders, helping to print several titles from from his Fuck You Press on the mimeo machine at the Center.
