Cage collates, reproduces, & displays 255 scores by a variety of contemporary composers invited to send their work with a limited word number commentary. The book is a wonderful exploration through the avant-garde, and it is great compelling nourishment for the composer to see the various graphic icons of someone's hand.
Noticeable tears and discoloration to original dust jacket, now wrapped in protective dust jacket. Kept in very good condition.
Inscription on top first free paper. Unauthenticated possibly by John Cage: "for Irwin who makes everything possible John"
Includes letter from Irwin Kremen, denying he is the Irwin in the inscription.
