San Francisco: City Lights, 1964. First edition. 12mo. Original blue and orange wraps. Trace toning and touches to edges. Still, a fine copy: bright, clean, and sharp. (Item ID: 20504)

OíHaraís most popular and influential work, and after HOWL, the most important title issued in the City Lights Pocket Series. Famously (and somewhat apocryphally) written on O'Hara's lunch hours from MoMA, the book is O'Hara at his finest and contains several of his best known poems, including the classic "The Day Lady Died": "It is 12:20 in New York a Friday / three days after Bastille day, yes / it is 1959 and I go get a shoeshine.î Smith notes 3000 copies, but Cook calls for 1500, a number that is probably more accurate. Even given this print run, however. LUNCH POEMS remains uncommon. And truly scarce in this condition. A beautiful edition of a classic and quintessential New York School work. [Smith A8].
