16 Lambert, Alix Mastering the Melon: Projects By Alix Lambert
Madrid, Spain Galerie Javier Lopez 2006 First Edition Hardcover Fine Issued Without Jacket Book 
The "projects" are all sufficiently different from one another to defy characterizing Lambert's art: one was to commission a series of portraits of herself on very tiny things (e.g., a grain of rice, a nail clipping); another was to marry and divorce three men and a woman; in Male Pattern Baldness, she shaved her own head in an appropriate pattern and impersonated a basketball coach in a suit…. You need to see this. 122-pages, with an essay by Tim Griffin, captions and comments by the artist, an index to the work in the book, and an exhibition history. Fine in hardcover without dust jacket as issued.

20 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.
