New York: Tibor de Nagy Editions, 1965. First Edition. Square 8vo. Perfect-bound wraps. Very minor touches of soil to front wrapper. Small ownership signature to title page. Faint toning internally. Else bright, tight, clean, and sharp. Near fine overall. 30pp. (Item ID: 21793)

From an edition of 500 copies. The final book by O'Hara published during his lifetime, following LUNCH POEMS. Edited John Bernard Myers writes of the publication: "I waited for these poems for three or four years ... When [Frank] did give them to me I couldn't induce him to arrange them in their proper sequence nor give me a title. I wrote 'Love Poems (Tentative Title' on the first page, then arranged them so that the sequence would show the beginning of a new love, its middle period of floundering, the collapse of the affair with its attendant sadness and regret. Frank liked the arrangement and my 'tentative' title. And that was that." [Smith A9]. Decidedly uncommon in this condition. An exceptonal copy.
