Item Description: Lorenz Gude, New York, 1963. First printing. (28) pp., tall narrow 4to. Side-stapled mimeo. Silkscreen covers by Andy Warhol; introductions, essays, and notes by Frank O'Hara, John Wieners, and Ted Berrigan; poems by Edwin Denby. One of a small number of special copies, signed on the title page by all five contributors and by Gerard Malanga (who appears with Denby in the cover photos). In very good condition, with slight rusting to staples, tiny tears along the wraparound spine (not affecting the images), and mild rumpling to the foredges of the cover, which extend beyond the text block. As with most (and perhaps all) of the special copies, "signed" is noted in pink ink on the front cover in an unknown hand, and there are holograph corrections by Denby to six of the poems (in one case, the restoration of an entire line). The September 1963 issue of Berrigan's now-legendary journal, devoted to the still-neglected poems of Edwin Denby, with the almost infamous Warhol silkscreen covers. The covers on copies of this issue, reportedly executed by Berrigan himself, vary considerably, essentially constituting a Warhol multiple as much as an edition. The compelling front cover image on this copy is sharper and more complete than is usual. Reva Wolf's estimate of the importance of these images is worth quoting in full: "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, beginning in 1970. Even his editorial approach to the C portraits—thoughtfully selecting a few photographs out of several he had shot— would become a customary step in his production of later Polaroid portraits. A comparison of five rejected Polaroids from the Denby and Malanga sitting to the two images he chose to use for the C cover reveals that Warhol selected for the cover those images that were most legible, most centered compositionally, and that would set up a clear narrative which moved from a formal portrait on the front cover—a witty homosexual parody of conventional portrayals of husbands and wives—to an intimate exchange on the back cover" (Andy Warhol, Poetry, and Gossip in the 1960s, p. 22). She also notes regarding the back cover image,"Malanga has recalled unhesitatingly that for this photograph Warhol had specifically instructed him to bend over and kiss Denby." Uncommon, historically important, and poignant beyond all the ironies. Bookseller Inventory # 3710

Item 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.

Item Description: (1957), 1957. Book Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: resend this item. RIVERS, Larry (illustrator). 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.

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

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: Grove Press, NY, 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

Item Description: Arion Press, San Francisco, 1990. First edition. 44 loose sheets plus text booklet. Illus. with 42 lithographs. Bill Berkson, essay. No. 36 of 150 copies (of a total edition of 180), signed by 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" (Arion Press catalogue). A near fine copy, contents fine but for crease on half-title, in a clamshell box with a soil spot on front cover and faint edge wear to corners; booklet is a fine copy. 44 loose sheets in red silk clamshell box; text bound in stitched paper wrappers in pocket of portfolio.
