Quarto (11 x 8 1/2 inches; 280 x 215mm), 16 unnumbered leaves, in side-stapled illustrated card wrappers.

SIGNED by Bernadette Mayer and Lewis Warsh on the colophon, one of just 75 copies of this self-published collection of poems by two key members of the New York School. Mayer (b. 1945) and Warsh (1944-2020) were partners at the time.

Undated internally, but colophon states: "Published in an edition of 75 for the New Year," with the wrappers showing "1981!" Striking illustrated wrappers uncredited, although Warsh said in interviews that Mayer drew them.

OCLC shows about a dozen institutional holdings. SCARCE.

CONDITION: Light soiling to upper wrapper, some spotting to the lower wrapper near the stapled edge and along the spine. Overall, Very Good or better. Item #1174
