New York: Grossman Publishers, 1973. First edition of the poet's third collection of poems and first to be issued by a commercial publisher. 

Issued in both hardcover and wrappers simultaneously, this is the scarce hardbound  edition.  Estimates put the print run for the hardbound edition at a couple of hundred, with few likely distributed to the public.

Signed by the poet on the title page and very uncommon thus.

Darkening to board edges as is common for this title.  Small spot to text block, last page has a small stain and some bleed through from the rust colored end paper. Overall, a better than very good copy.

Pictorial dust wrapper, featuring wraparound cover artwork by Larry Rivers and Ted Berrigan blurb, presents very nicely indeed, overall very good, not clipped and without any tears, chips, fading or rubbing but a little tanned at the edges, slight staining to rear flap, front flap a little creased, and verso of dust wrapper is textured, cause indeterminable, with the result that the front and rear panels are not tactilely smooth.
