Book Description: New York: Editions of the Tibor de Nagy Gallery, "1951" [i.e. 1952]., 1952. Small quarto. Linen and decorated boards, spine panel lettered in gilt. Frontis and two illustrations by Rivers. Extremities a bit rubbed and modestly darkened, spine a bit sunned and smudged, but a very good copy. First edition, deluxe issue. One of twenty numbered deluxe copies printed on Japanese Kochi paper, specially bound, with an original graphite and wash drawing (24.2 x 15.2 cm; 9.5 x 6") by Larry Rivers tipped in to serve as the frontispiece (in this case, of a male nude, signed "Rivers"). The ordinary issue consisted of another 280 copies on Arches (although the colophon called for 130, and many copies were issued unnumbered and without wrappers). Not all of the drawings used for this special issue were signed by the artist. One of the most significant first books of its generation, a key book among those associated with the New York "School" of Poetry, and, in this deluxe issue, an uncommon book. SMITH A1b.

Book 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

Book 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.

Book Description: Tibor De Nagy Editions, N. Y., 1965. Square 8vo, original striped wrappers The usual offsetting to the title-page from the striped wrappers, otherwise a very fine copy First edition. One of only 20 copies numbered and signed by O'Hara out of a total edition of 500 copies. Love Poems is a collection of sixteen love poems to Vincent Warren, the culmination of "three or four years" of "constant urging" on the part of John Myers, its editor. 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

Book 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

Book 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

Book 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

Book 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

Book 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

Book Description: Grove Press (1957), N. Y., 1957. 8vo, original green cloth, publisher's slipcase. 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
