THE NEW UNIVERSAL SOLAR CALENDAR

New York: George Maciunas, [1969]. First Edition. Single sheet, 20.5'' x 23.5'', folded as issued. Some toning to paper and light wear to folds. INSCRIBED by MacLise: "Well baby here it is as last the long / awaited trove trickster's paradise text and time table / if you can line up some orders-$3.00 apiece, it / will make it all seem worthwhile!!! / (Also enclose "WRIT" for you-available at $2.50 / am coming out with a record soon (Poedisk label) / is called " The Gold Mountain" / can also take advance orders on it ($7.00-double album) / to soon appear: book of collected poems/calligraphies; mythic terrains, hyperspace star/charts; ($7.50 " The Ninefold Schema." On another flap signed by MacLise thus: "New Universal Solar Calendar/ Angus Maclise/ Dreamweapon/ New York, 1969." Very good plus. Very good +. Item #23716

Similar to MacLise's earlier "Year," The New Universal Solar Calendar renames the days of the year, but in this format prints the phrases in his characteristic calligraphic hand, producing a full artwork that actually seems to take itself a bit more seriously than most of the multiples produced by Macianus at the time. Fluxus Codex page 398. OCLC locates only one example, included in the Angus MacLise papers held by Columbia University. Rare, even moreso inscrbed as here.

Price: $3,500.00
