This is the Black Sparrow Press 1966 publication, limited to 750 copies of the John Ashbery poetry collection, “Fragment” (57 numbered pages), with many Alex Katz illustrations.
This copy has a note, signed by Ashbery, dated 10/13/69, on the front end page. (The recipient’s name is blocked in the photo, but not in the book.)
The cover is good overall, but with several small stains, sunning to the borders, and curl to the upper outside corner. The inside is very good, with shallow edge wear, but no notable tears. The upper outside corner curl continues throughout the book. There are no stamps or other attachments. The author’s note is the only writing.
The binding is secure, with no loose or missing pages. The pages are clean, with all art and text unfaded. The accompanying photos are accurate reflections of the book conditions.
