Tiber Press. THE NEW YORK SCHOOL. New York, 1960. Editions of 200.

Four volumes, folios (171/2 x 14 inches), housed in a green linen slipcase, comprising: "The Poems" with poems by John Ashberry and screenprints by Joan Mitchell, "Salute" with poems by James Schuyler and screenprints by Grace Hartigan, "Odes," with poems by Frank O'Hara and screenprints by Michael Goldberg, and "Permanently," with poems by poems by Kenneth Koch and screenprints by Alfred Leslie.

Each volume signed by the poet and the artist, and numbered "146," and each with one print on its cover, one on its title page and three hors texte. Each volume consists of forty pages and contains five prints: one on the cover, one on the title page and three interspersed throughout the book. The prints were made directly on the screens by the artists, and the text was handset and printed by Bruder Hartmann in West Berlin on handmade Hahnemuhle paper.

The whole in excellent condition throughout. with the colors extremely fresh, and little evidence of handling or use.

An important collaboration among leaders of the literary and art world of the avant garde movement of abstract expressionism known as "The New York School" which flourished in the 1950s. Each poet chose an artist.

Scarce as a set and in this condition.
