Fragment; Poem by John Ashbery, Illustrated by Alex Katz

Los Angeles: Black Sparrow Press, 1969. First Edition. Small 4to, 57pp; leather-backed boards. Fine in original slipcase, a bit rubbed and with partial cracking to joints. Item #206220

One of twenty lettered copies, specially bound, with an original ink drawing by Katz as a frontispiece, in this instance a portrait of a boy. One of Ashbery's and Black Sparrow's rarest books, this is only the third copy we've encountered. It seems likely that many such copies had their artwork removed and sold separately.

Price: $5,000.00
