1953 – TURANDOT AND OTHER POEMS BY JOHN ASHBERY
with four drawings by Jane Freilicher
Editions of the
Tibor De Nagy Gallery
New York – 1953
A scarce booklet, measuring about 6 inches by 9 1/4 inches, in sewn wraps published in an edition of 300 copies. THIS PIECE IS NOTED FOR ITS OVERSIZE AND FRAGILE COVER, accounting for the limited number remaining. The few copies for sale currently range from $1500 to $2500. Three of the four copies for sale have had the covers strengthened, rebacked or rebound. Here is an untouched, unrepaired copy that you can have professionally repaired if you wish. AGAIN, the paper used on the cover, and its oversize from the book block is what has caused the problems with this publication
I am showing two of the four black and white illustrations in the sample spreads below.
