Studying Hunger

New York and Bolinas, California: Adventures in Poetry and Big Sky, 1975. First Edition, First Printing. SIGNED by Bernadette Mayer on the colophon, one of 26 special signed copies from a total edition of 1,000. Poems, diaries, and stream-of-consciousness musings by an important figure in the New York School of poetry (b. 1945). Nice close-up photo of Mayer on the cover, by Ed Bowes. Small 4to (10 inches / 25 cm tall), 71 [1] pages, in perfect-bound wrappers. Some edge wear and soiling to the covers. A Very Good or better copy. This collection has been reprinted a number of times, but we find no other copies of this first edition in commerce as of November 9, 2016. And given that there were only 26 signed copies, this is an especially elusive volume. SCARCE SIGNED. Item #1175

Price: $450.00
