Item #27555 The Sonnets. Ted Berrigan.

The Sonnets

New York: C Press, 1964. First edition. 4vo, mimeographed from typescript, stapled wraps. Cover by Joe Brainard. One of a limited edition of 300 numbered copies, this copy unnumbered and out of series.

The first edition of this legendary book of the second generation of the New York School, a huge influence on so much vital work since.

Covers heavily toned, with some abrasion, perhaps from insect damage, to cover, and some grubbiness and creasing. This copy is complete with the colophon and back cover, the latter which is often missing due to the bulk of the book, which was a challenge for even the C Press stapler. Item #27555
