Lobdell, Frank (illus.)

San Francisco: Arion Press, 2008. Quarto. (96)pp. One of 275 copies. Illustrated with two photographs, two etchings by Frank Lobdell, and an etching with aquatint by Lobdell in a separate folder that accompanies the book. In the prospectus for this edition, Andrew Hoyem notes that this is the first time that all thirty-one poems identified as being part of Duncan's serial poem have been published in a single volume. This edition also includes seven poems from Duncan's notebooks that were identified with "Structure of Rime," six of which were never published. A very personal production from Hoyem, who for many years was connected with Duncan and the other poets of the San Francisco renaissance. Bound in red Japanese cloth, with Lobdell's etchings set into frames on both covers, and housed in a matching slipcase. The separate etching is in a printed folder and publisher's plastic bag, which bears a small label showing the title of the plate and the edition. Prospectus laid in. Item #28450
