[New York]: Lorenz & Ellen Gude, 1964. First edition. Side-stapled 4to. mimeo. Cover by Joe Brainard; offset duplicated. Very good with the usual toning, mild edgewear. Some scuffing to covers. Soil here and there. Final leaf loose at two staples, but holding. Lacking rear cover and terminal blank (as in many copies and given specific provenance of this item - see below - we suspect many were issued this way). [66] leaves mimeographed rectos only. PROVENANCE: Izzy Young's copy, with his contemporary ownership inscription to last page: "Israel G. Young, December 1964, from Ed Sanders." Young was a central figure throughout the 1960s NYC music and literary scenes. He founded the Folklore Center, produced Dylan's first concert in 1961 (Dylan even wrote a song for/about him, "Talking Folklore Center"), and was close to Sanders, helping to print several titles from from his Fuck You Press on the mimeo machine at the Center. (Item ID: 14548)

Edited by Ron Padgett (who also typed the stencils), this remains the definitive statement of the Second Generation of the New York School as well as Berrigan's most influential, popular, and lasting work - a measure of which can be seen in the fact that it is the only major American collection of the last fifty years to go through four sepa- rate editions, each at different publishers. From an edition of "300 plus an unspecified number of unnumbered copies" (Fischer p. 24), this is from the unnumbered series, estimated (by Berrigan himself; again see Fischer) to be about 100.
