NY: Vehicle Editions, [1978]. First edition. One of 1,474 wrappered copies, from a total edition of 1500. [48] leaves, printed recto only. Perfect-bound in wraps, 7 x 5 in., featuring cover by Joe Brainard. Very good, with toning to spine, some incidental soiling to fore- edge. Signed by Berrigan to the front end-paper and also inscribed on the following flyleaf: “For Tommy [or Tony] and Kathy, don’t show this one to Mom, she might think she forgot to bring me up not to use “bad language” Love & kisses, Teddy.”
An unusually tender and revealing presentation copy of this book-length poem, originally written in 1971 (the date given by the copyright page), but unpublished until 1978. Berrigan’s inscription is to his sister Kathy (and her presumed husband).
