In the Early Morning Rain. Ted Berrigan.

In the Early Morning Rain

London and New York: Cape Goliard Press and Grossman Publishers, 1970. First Edition, First Printing. A book of poems and prose, INSCRIBED on the front end paper by Ted Berrigan to fellow poet Terry Jacobus: "For Terry in Chicago / at Dinner / 2 May 72. / 'The last of the / First Editions.' / Love, / Ted." Additionally signed in full on the title page; Berrigan has crossed out his name as printed on the page and signed with his own signature. A nice association from Berrigan's days in Chicago. This is the wrappers edition featuring a cover and drawings by George Schneeman. There were two other simultaneous issues--a hardcover trade edition and a signed, limited edition. No priority. (See Aaron Fischer, Ted Berrigan: An Annotated Checklist, page 41.) Small 4to (9 7/8 x 6 1/2 inches / 245 x 165 mm), [106] pages in printed wrappers. Bump to one corner, edge wear, a bit of soiling to the top edge and fore edge, and some very light toning to the pages. Slight lean. Overall, a Very Good copy of one of the strongest collections by Ted Berrigan (1934-1983) and a nice association with a fellow poet. Item #1256
