May 24th Or So.

N. Y. Tibor De Nagy Editions, 1966. First edition of Schuyler's first book of poetry. One of only 20 copies signed by Schuyler out of a total edition of 300 copies printed; this is copy number 1. "Like Freilicher, Schuyler was determined to let order emerge from a faithful rendering of a scene rather than from an exercise of the artist's will. He and she had in common the ability to be satisfied, aesthetically, with one view from one window at different times of day, in changing light.... (Schuyler) stands in relation to poetry as Fairfield Porter and Jane Freilicher stand in relation to paintings: committed to a vision of things as they are rather than as they might be in some idealized or reconfigured state." - Lehman, p. 46, 245-246. Very fine copy. Square small 8vo, original decorated wrappers.

Price: $2,500.00
