second avenue by Frank O'Hara(1960)

Second Avenue
Frank O'Hara
New York, New York

Unpaginated staple-bound chapbook with cover art by Larry Rivers. A must for collectors of O'Hara. The interesting thing about this particular copy is that the gutter of the book is so centered that someone missed that the text on the last page of text has been cut off (the text went beyond the page!) A printer's error. It's the little things that make the biggest difference, all the same.

Consists of a single poem, In Memory of Vladimir Mayakovsky.
