Item Description: Lorenz Gude and Ted Berrigan, New York, 1963. Wraps. Book Condition: Near Fine. First Edition. New York: Lorenz Gude and Ted Berrigan, 1963. First Edition. Wraps. Near Fine. Side-stapled 4to. mimeo with silk-screened covers designed by Andy Warhol. 36 x 22.5 cm. Unpaginated. This copy SIGNED by Berrigan, Denby, Wieners, Frank O'Hara, Gerard Malanga, and Andy Warhol on the colophon. One of an unknown but tiny (one source suggests "a half-dozen or so," but suspect higher) number of such specially-signed copies. In addition, six poems contain small corrections in Denby's hand, and one poem is revised by both Denby and Berrigan (with Denby correcting Berrigan's correction). Generally fine. An unknown hand (probably Berrigan's) has noted "Signed" in the upper right-hand corner of the front cover. Trace wear to edges. A remarkably bright, sharp, clean and sound example of a fragile production. The fourth issue of Berrigan's landmark mimeo, an issue dedicated to the work of poet and critic Edwin Denby, but most significant for its Warhol-designed cover. As the colophon page states simply: "The cover of this issue was designed by Andy Warhol from photographs of poets Edwin Denby and Gerard Malanga." Berrigan had met Warhol at a reading by Frank O'Hara earlier that year and a few days later sent the artist the first two issues of his fledgling literary journal. As Berrigan's diary notes soon after: "Andy Warhol said he'd like to do a cover for C 4." Warhol and Malanga met Denby at his apartment where the photographs for the cover were taken. The two images finally selected -- of Malanga behind Denby with both men holding hands, and the second for the rear cover of Malanga leaning in to kiss Denby -- caused a stir in literary circles when it was finally published. As Reva Wolf -- whose book Andy Warhol, Poetry, and Gossip in the 1960's (Chicago, 1997) provides the fullest account of the production and importance of these images -- explains: "This is the first-known instance in which Warhol used Polaroids for silkscreen portraits, a practice he did not pursue at the time but one to which he would return and which would become his standard procedure for making portraits" (22). According to Malanga, it was Berrigan who actually printed the covers -- Warhol having dropped the silkscreens off "along with a can of paint, a squeegee, and instructions on how to print it" (30) on his way to Los Angeles for his second one-man show -- thereby becoming in essence a temporary Warhol studio assistant. Nonetheless, these Warhol-designed covers represent a turning point in his development as an artist. As Wolf explains, Warhol's C portraits were both a backhanded critique of the poet Frank O'Hara (who maintained a chilly skepticism of the artist) as well as a way for Warhol to further insinuate himself in the New York literary scene at an early and still-formative time in his career. Copies of this particular issue of C are themselves scarce. Edition sizes for most issues were typically around 250. We've seen only a handful of this issue over the last ten years, with several lacking the covers, and are aware of only two other copies of the signed issue having been offered for sale. And though not in Warhol's catalogue raisonne, this very-limited signed issue represents what is, in effect, one the artist's earliest silk-screened multiples. Rare and important.

Item Description: The Limited Editions Club, N Y, 1988. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine with no dust jacket. Illustrated by Willem De Kooning (illustrator). Lithograph; Width: 18" Height: 22"; Frank O'Hara POEMS 1988 Limited Editions Club Facsimile Signed By Illustrator Willem De Kooning 17 Original Lithographs Series. "The Collected Poems" of Frank O'Hara edited by Donald Allen (Knopf, 1971) , the first of several posthumous collections, shared the 1972 National Book Award for Poetry. Width: 18" Height: 22". This is a scarce limited edition of this collection of poetry by Frank O'Hara, signed in facsimile by Dutch-American abstract expressionist artist Willem de Kooning on the colophon page. This is number 375 of 550. This elephant folio is bound in black leather with stamped gilt lettering on front cover. Volume is in excellent condition. This book contains 17 original lithographs. This series of lithographs was originally created in 1967 as charcoal drawings on sheets of plastic, to illustrate O'Hara's "Ode to Willem de Kooning" (In Memory of My Feelings, MOMA, 1967). However, only three of De Kooning's drawings were used in the MOMA publication. Here the complete original suite of 17 drawings is first published in its entirety. They are accompanied by a new selection of poems by O'Hara. The text has been set in English Monotype Bodoni 135 by Julia Ferrari and Dan Carr at Golgonooza Letterfoundry and Hand-Composed by Arthur Larson at Horton Tank Graphics. The display type is Bauer Bodoni. The text has been printed at Wild Carrot Letterpress. The paper was made at Cartiere Enrico Magnani. Thy mylars were transferred to lithographic plates at American Atelier by Benjamin Shiff and printed under his direction at Trestle Editions. The lithographs were printed on Japanese Kitakata. The prints were hand-torn and applied with intaglio presses to the text page at Wingate Studio and Renaissance Press. This book was designed and edited by Benjamin Shiff. Black cloth clamshell case with inset gilt-lettered leather spine label and velvet lining shows light shelfwear, with lightly bumped outside corners and cracks at ends of fore-edge panel. Case measures approximately 19" x 23.5". One corner, although itself sound, has a small cloth split along it's edge. There is no LEC letter. Of the 10 sales I was able to locate since 1988 only one of them noted the presence of an LEC letter. A second sale noted that it included a signed letter from the publisher to the purchaser. It is my belief that an LEC letter was not regularly issued for this work. ; Signed by Illustrator; 21. Bookseller Inventory # 33345

Item Description: (1957), 1957. No Binding. Book Condition: Fine. RIVERS, Larry (illustrator). 1st Edition. Original lithograph, 23 3/4" x 18 3/4", black ink on cream paper by Larry Rivers Original collaborative lithograph, editioned ("B1"), and signed by O'Hara and the artist, Larry Rivers. "Us" was the first in a series of lithographic prints, collectively called "Stones", produced by O'Hara and Rivers for Tatyana Grosman's Universal Limited Art Editions studio from 1957-1960. In his autobiography, Rivers recounts how the project came about and progressed: "As a young painter, I had the notion that there was an intrinsic good in painters and poets working together. It seemed like socialism in its smallest and most personal form. I had the idea that the assault on the senses coming from two directions, pictorial and poetic, would be twice as strong. . . . My chance came along in the summer of 1957 when Tanya Grossman started her lithography studio and asked me to do a series of stones with Frank O'Hara. . . . Each time we got together, we would choose some very definite subject, and since there was nothing we had more access to than ourselves, the first stone was called Us. . . . Frank was almost as important as myself in the overall visual force of the print." - Rivers, Drawings and Digressions. With Carol Brightman. (NY: Clarkson N. Potter, 1979), p. 115. "With his [O'Hara's] own hands, using a mirror to write backward, he put his poetry on the litho stones in and around my images." - Rivers, What Did I Do? (NY: Harper Collins, 1992), pp. 233-234.

O'Hara finally submitted twenty-eight poems from which Myers selected sixteen. "I wrote 'Love Poems (Tentative Title)' on the first page, then arranged them so the sequence would show the beginning of a new love, its middle period of floundering, the collapse of the affair with its attendant sadness and regret. Frank liked the arrangement and my 'tentative' title. And that was that." - Myers, "Frank O'Hara: A Memoir". Published in March, Love Poems sold out within the year. Bookseller Inventory # 21458

Item Description: The Floating Bear / Poet's Press, New York / San Francisco, 1971. Softcover. Magazine. Quartos. Loose mimeograph sheets top- or side-stapled and printed on both sides. Most issued folded for mailing with post office cancel, stamp and mailing label, along with some toning (as usual), scattered edgewear, and four tiny holes along the spine of the issues 3-30, overall very good. An influential mimeograph published by LeRoi Jones [Amiri Baraka] and Diane di Prima featuring some of the most important poets of the 20th Century. Unlike other magazines, this so-called "newsletter" was distributed via a closed mailing list that included many noted poets, journalists, critics, publishers, and artists. For this reason, most copies were hand addressed or affixed with a mailing label and stamp, and folded for mailing. This near-complete run lacks only the first two issues and the rare issue 24. It contains a virtual who's who of 1960s poetry that mixed contributors from the San Francisco and New York scenes along with Warhol's Factory regulars (such as Billy Name, who co-edited two issues), as well as numerous experimental and avant-garde writers including Allen Ginsberg, Charles Olson, William S. Burroughs, Frank O'Hara, Ed Dorn, Robert Creeley, Robert Duncan, John Weiners, John Ashbery, and many, many others. Also included is an original *Floating Bear* mailing envelope and two scarce promotional broadsheets sent to subscribers between issues 36 and 37. One is for new Poet's Press books and another titled, "Attention, Floating Bear Fans and Addicts," laments the magazine's dire financial situation and its impending end if funding is not found; the following issue was the last of the run. An influential close-circulation magazine that is now considered one of the finest of the Mimeograph Revolution. Bookseller Inventory # 365893

Item Description: Grove Press (1957), N. Y., 1957. 8vo, original green cloth, publisher's slipcase. Fading along the spine (as usual), and at the finger-pull on the front panel, otherwise a very good copy in somewhat faded and marked slipcase. An important association copy First edition, limited issue. One of 75 numbered hardbound copies. (Only 90 copies of the entire edition were hardbound, with 15 containing original drawings by Grace Hartigan; not all of the hardbound copies were signed by O'Hara). Presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper by O'Hara to his good friend and sometime collaborator, second-generation Abstract Expressionist painter Mike Goldberg: "For Mike - Happy Birthday and I hope the Houses & Odes go on and on into 1262 - Frank". As members of the New York School of poets and painters, O'Hara and Goldberg traveled in the same circles and had many friends in common, all of whom knew each other's work well. O'Hara encouraged Goldberg in his painting and persuaded John Myers to give Goldberg his first - and last - show at Tibor de Nagy Gallery in October 1953. Later, O'Hara included Goldberg's "Summer House" (1958) in his "Documenta II '59" show in Kassel, Germany. Goldberg figures in, or inspires, a number of poems by O'Hara including "Ode to Michael Goldberg ('s Birth and Other Births)" (1958), "On Rachmaninoff's Birthday & About Arshile Gorky" (1963), and, most famously, "Why I Am Not A Painter" (1956). O'Hara and Goldberg collaborated on the volume Odes, which combines O'Hara's poetry and five original screen prints by Goldberg, a livre d'artiste published by the Tiber Press in 1960. In 1962, Goldberg made a series of paintings on paper, "Dear Diary", that refract the contents of letters and postcards by O'Hara he received while O'Hara was traveling in Europe. Russell Ferguson writes, "Goldberg's desire to mirror O'Hara's travels in paint reflects the closeness of their relationship." - Ferguson, In Memory of My Feelings: Frank O'Hara and American Art. (L.A.: The Museum of Contemporary Art, 1999), pp. 68-71. Bookseller Inventory # 22396

Item Description: San Francisco: The Arion Press. First Edition, 1990. With 42 lithographs by Jim Dine. Very large format. 1/150 copies for sale (of a total edition of 180cc). Loose sheets (15x22 inches) contained in a portfolio box covered in deep red cloth and stamped in black. "Companion to Biotherm" booklet (written by Bill Berkson, to whom the poem is dedicated) in recessed inner pocket of the cover. Letterpress printing. Each copy numbered and signed by the Artist on the Colophon sheet. Also included is the Arion Press Announcement of the book. Very Fine copy and booklet, as new. O'Hara's long poem, his last effort in this form, completed in 1962, first published in Audit, anthologized in A Controversy Of Poets (1965), and eventually in The Collected Poems of Frank O'Hara (1971). Berkson, the dedicatee and unofficial literary executor of O'Hara's work and memory, provides in the Companion a brilliant and intimate account of his relationship to the late poet, providing important insights into O'Hara's method and manner, along with a detailed Glossary of terms, names and phrases in the poem. Aside from the legendary early Tibor de Nagy tomes, this is quietly the most ambitious and elegant livre d'artiste of the New York School. Dine's illustrations are not add-ons and accompaniments, but integrations which qualify as true collaborations. Suitable for framing or display. Bookseller Inventory # B863XDAJF0

Item Description: NY Grove Press (1957), 1957. First edition of O'Hara's second and, arguably, best-known book. One of 75 copies, signed by O'Hara. Presentation copy, inscribed by O'Hara on front endpaper to Morris Golde: "For Morris, from one islander to another." The reference is to Fire Island, where Golde had a summer beach house, and where O'Hara composed "For James Dean," after learning of Dean's death in 1955. In an ironic twist of fate, it was at this same location where, in 1966, O'Hara was struck by a dune buggy and killed. A fine copy in green cloth, the spine of which is far less toned than is usually encountered, housed in publisher's slipcase, which shows light wear and toning. Bookseller Inventory # 18087

Item Description: Arion Press, 1990. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. This large-scale, limited edition portfolio combines a great poem with an artist's response in 42 lithographs by Jim Dine. "Biotherm" is the last long poem of Frank O'Hara, whose accidental death in 1966 at age forty deprived America of one of its most vital and innovative poets. The poet and critic Bill Berkson, to whom the poem is addressed, provided an essay and compiled a glossary to explicate the references in the poem and to recount the circumstances of its writing. The artist Jim Dine knew O'Hara and admired his work. Challenged by O'Hara's brilliant experimentation in "Biotherm", Dine's prints pay a vibrant homage to the poet and engage themes in the poem. Biotherm, a true livre d'artiste, is the sixth collaboration between Jim Dine and Andrew Hoyem. The format is 22 by 15 inches, issued as unbound sheets in portfolio. The poem was set by hand in 22-point Spectrum. Over proofs of the poetry Dine drew inter-weaving images. Between the text pages are leaves with illustrations only. The images were printed by duotone offset lithography and the text overprinted by letterpress. The portfolio box is covered in red cloth. The essay and glossary, issued as a booklet 11 by 7-1/2 inches, is contained in a recessed pocket of the portfolio. The paper is English mouldmade T. H. Saunders Waterford, hot-press finish. The lithographic printing was done at Phelps-Schaefer in Brisbane, California. Numbered and signed by the artist. Edition of 150 copies. Also available with extra suite of prints at additional cost. 45 pages. Signed by Illustrator(s). Bookseller Inventory # 032

Some light foxing to endpapers, with a bit of foxing to the cloth, otherwise a fine copy First edition. The colophon is vague and confusing: "Meditations in an Emergency is published in three editions: A Special Edition of fifteen copies, each numbered and containing as frontispiece an original drawing by Grace Hartigan; A Limited Edition of seventy-five copies; An Evergreen Book of Poetry." Not all copies of the hardbound issue were signed; nor have we seen one of the special copies with the Hartigan drawing to confirm whether they too were signed, although one imagines they were. The present copy, however, is numbered "10" and signed by O’Hara on the colophon page. Bookseller Inventory # 7898
