Black cloth-backed decorated paper over boards; narrow 4to. [39 pp.] Two poem sequences. "This first book issued with the new pressmark, adopted in Copper Canyon's tenth year, was printed in the summer by Tree Swenson in an edition of two hundred and thirty copies with hand set twelve point Bembo and twenty-four point Castellar types on Frankfurt paper. The book was hand bound by Marsha Hollingsworth who also collaborated with Tree Swenson on the design of the book. All illustrations are adapted from Greek vase paintings, the two on the interior by the printer and the cover by Phyllis Hopeck, who also directed the silkscreening of the image onto Canson paper from the screen prepared by Drew Elicker. Thanks go to Centrum where Copper Canyon Press is in residence, and to James Laughlin who provided the manuscript." [Colophon.] Essentially fine copy, with light shelfwear to bottom edges, lacking the spine label.Scarce in the marketplace, many having gone to institutions. Lovely fine press edition of an essential Modernist's work.
