Very good +.
OCLC locates only 5 copies. An early book from Johnny Stanton's NYC Press, perhaps best-known as a frequent publisher of iconic Joe Brainard works (THE BANANA BOOK, THE CIGARETTE BOOK, etc.). It is unclear whether Brainard actually had a hand in this publication (next to no one is explicitly credited), but Stanton gives "[m]uch Thanks to: David Anderson, Joe Brainard, George Schneeman, Johanna Stanton, Tom + Rick Veitch." The book itself is reminiscent of elementary school workbooks, but is predictably vulgar and irreverent, evoking something of a punk style avant la lettre, with pages in several different colors (pink, blue, yellow, orange...), and includes a "nazi" comic by Tom and Rick Veitch.
[New York]: [Siamese Banana], (1971). Wraps. 4to. Side-stapled wraps. Very good plus. Mild corner crease to wraps. Half-inch at bottom corner torn, bit of paper missing throughout. Otherwise bright, crisp, clean, and sharp overall. Good and sound. Unpaginated.
