Ed Sanders Archive for sale

Post by Jed » Mon Jan 25, 2016 7:52 pm

The most important Mimeo Revolution archive is up for sale. It will go to an institution and I would guess a cool million is the opening price. 400 boxes of material. Sanders documented himself meticulously as you would expect from someone who made his living selling rare books in the 1960s. I would suspect that this archive will serve as the case study for an academic analysis of the day to day operations of a mimeo press.

Granary Books and Steve Clay is the premier dealer for placing archives of Mimeo Revolution and related material with institutions. Clay just had an archive of 400 flyers and handbills for poetry readings from 1960 to 1980. To get an idea of what types of material his is handling (and more importantly selling) check here
