The Floating Bear: A Newsletter. Issue # 12

New York: The Floating Bear, 1961. First Edition. Quarto (28cm.); side-stapled mimeographed self-wrappers; [12]pp. A Fine and unfolded (possibly unissued) copy, as the magazine sold only through its mailing list. Contents chiefly devoted to the poetry of John Ashbery, and provides a notice on p. [12] that the poet "is now looking for manuscripts (poems) for Locus Solus 3." Concludes with the plea "We are, as ever, badly in need of money for Bears. This isn't addressed to those of you who have done more than your share, but to you guys who have as yet done nothing: PLEASE SEND WHATEVER YOU CAN, AS SOON AS YOU CAN."
