This an original proof for the dust jacket to Howard Browne's first book "Warrior of the Dawn", the author's only fantasy novel aimed at older boys. A Tarzan-like adventure, the novel is the story of Tharn, a Cro-Magnon which was one of the first truly human races. Penned during the period of the Second World War, there is a hint of patriotism to the story which is further emphasized by the jacket's blurb which states: "Give Tharn a tommy-gun instead of a flint- tipped spear, and he would be very much at home with the Marines in the South Pacific".
The science fiction editor and mystery writer Howard Browne (1908-1999) was managing editor for the pulp periodicals "Amazing Stories" and "Fantastic Adventures" beginning in 1942. In addition to his novels and stories, he wrote for several television series and films including "Maverick", "Ben Casey", and "The Virginians". His novel "Thin Air" was used as the basis for an episode of "The Rockford Files" titled "Sleight of Hand" and also for a an episode of "Simon & Simon" titled, appropriately enough "Thin Air".
An illustrator and artist as well as a fine pressman, the jacket's illustrator Fridolf Johnson was an editor of American Artist Magazine until his retirement in the 1970's. As a graphic artist, he designed title panels for Hollywood movies and art & typography for advertising as well as dust jacket illustrations. He compiled and edited the Knopf book "Rockwell Kent: An Anthology of His Work" and the significant reference work "A Treasury of Bookplates From the Renaissance to the Present". Very good .
The event flyer advertised performances of Red Grooms' "Fireman's Dream" (later titled "The Magic Train Ride"), Allan Kaprow's "The Big Laugh", and Robert Whitman's "Small Cannon" in addition to an exhibition of Red Grooms' art work.
A rare event flyer for an early "happening", a term coined by Allan Kaprow to describe these early performance art events.
The art exhibit held in conjunction with the performances was Red Grooms first solo show.
The flyer is addressed to the Brata gallery, located at 89 E. 10th street, which was itself significant as one of the 10th Street galleries that operated co-operatively in Manhattan's East Village. These artist run galleries operated on low budgets were the avant-garde alternative to the conservative 57th Street galleries.
In its short life (October 1959 to April 1961), the Reuben Gallery, founded by Anita Reuben as "an outpost for human image in a sea of Abstract Expressionism", helped launch the careers of many of the important artists of the period. George Brecht, Jim Dine, Claes Oldenburg, and George Segal were among the many modern artists whose works were exhibited by the Reuben.
In a 2012 article published by The New York Times about the Pace Gallery's exhibition entitled "Happenings: New York, 1958-1963" Red Grooms states that "All of us were painters or makers of something. I guess we all had a knack for doing something theatrical, and there was a certain sort of movement in painting at that time. Pollock was a prime influence.." and further describes his work "I was enamored with all sorts of theater--circuses, carnivals, ice shows, things on television. In high school assemblies I would do skits; I'd come out in a tutu and do a pratfall. So my Happenings were physical as well. In all of them I played this character called the Pasty Man, who would come out from behind the curtain with this candle.."
