Lustrum Press, 1971 - 4to. Pictorial wraps. True first edition in softcover, published in 1971 by Ralph Gibson's Lustrum Press. The later, more common, hardcover edition was bound by Clark in 1979 from the 1971 sheets used to make this printing. Roth, 208-09. Open Book, 272-73. A very good copy with characteristic edge wear and slight chipping along spine. There is a soft crease to the bottom right corner of the front panel, not easily noticed. This particular copy comes from the library of interior designer, curator, writer, and fixture of downtown New York, Jim Walrod (1961-2017), and includes a small ex-libris stamp on the upper right corner of the front flyleaf, which reads "From the Library of Jim Walrod".
