Three times a year, a fat A5 catalogue from BeatBooks arrives through The Generalist’s door, stacked full of rare and wonderful books, magazines and posters for sale. The February issue centres on Beat Material, the May Issue on Avant-Garde movements from Fluxus to Punk, the July issue on Psychedelia. Andrew Sclanders has been dealing in this sort of material since 1991 and seem to be able to consistently unearth remarkable treasures. The latest catalogue [Burroughs up top] features four collections: (1) William Burroughs, the Cut-Up Method & Scientology; (2) Mel Lyman, Charles Manson & The Process; (3) John Giorno Poetry Systems; (4) Andy Warhol, the Velvet Underground & Friends. Prices range from a few pounds to thousands. The whole catalogue is available on-line at www.beatbooks.com. Recommended.
