Bethlehem, Pennsylvania Lehigh University Art Galleries 2001 First Edition Spiral in Cardboard Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
Catalogue for an exhibition held November 28, 2001-February 3, 2002, that featured the notations of more than 50 choreographers over 27 years. Not all of the notations appear in the catalogue, but it is valuable to have a list (and photographs) of these choreographers, whose work is so ephemeral but who are so visceral themselves. Fine in card with spiral binding.

4 Monk, Meredith Juice: A Theatre Cantata in Three Installments
New York The House 1969 First Edition Printer Wrapper Near-Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
The installments were performed at the Guggenheim (November 7 at 7 and 9:30 PM), the Minor Latham Playhouse (November 29, 30, and December 1 at 7 and 10 PM), and The House (December 7, continuous from 5:30 PM to midnight). This remarkable survival of the early work of a master of performance arts consists of 8 mimeographed pages stapled between two cover sheets: red covers, with a graphic/pictorial title on the front, and blank on the rear. Inside, a page of credits for the production, the contributors, and the sponsors; pages 2 through 7 describe what was supposed to happen in each installment in words and diagrams; and a final page dedicating the production to Janet Zalamea, who "began the violin score" and died, apparently, before the production was realized. Not only is this material in near-Fine condition, with very little wear at all, it is perhaps unique because page 2 is duplicated (the "extra" page does not quite line up, so has received more wear to the edges than the other pages). In all, a historical, wonderful piece of documentation.

7 Trager, Philip Dancers: Photographs By Philip Trager
Boston Little, Brown/A Bulfinch Press Book 1992 First Edition Stated Hardcover Fine Near-Fine Book 
A foreword by Bill T. Jones, an Afterword by Mark Morris, and essays by Joan Acocella and David Freedberg move this very large, very beautiful book quite out of the coffee table realm. Trager himself designed the sequencing of the photographs, so that the 81 14-5/8" x 11 " black and white photographs float by one as the pages turn. Fine hardcover binding in near-Fine dust jacket with closed tear to lower front edge.
