12 Mar TWO HANDWRITTEN LETTERS BY JAMES LEE BYARS TO BRANDON KRALL BOTH PAGES IN HIS STARRY SCRIPT. UNIQUE NO DATE (EARLY 90s)
Two folded black pieces of hand edged paper – 30 x 32cm, and 32.5 x 29cmm. Both with handwritten text in gold ink with Byars’ unmistakable starry stylings. The first seems to read “B I **** luck try that on yr modest group (the ***** of Godess??) you I hope you have a very creative” And the second: ”
time. Have call’d S 7 – I made it all official SEV times (??) Ate 8 – mouthfuls of **** yeats (years?). You keeping him here?? 9 – Make me some luck please. How material is a work 10 – make me some faith?? What is a work?? 11 Thank ytou for yr letter Let’s meet up soon Yrs JLB.” Bother are hard to read.
We understand these were sent to Brandon Krall (the B is for Brandon) from who we purchased the letters. The introduction of the numbering in the second letter from 9 is curious – but the two clearly related to each other and one text continues from the previous one. The letters were delivered by hand to Krall by Byars. Fine condition. Unique.
