8vo, original green cloth, publisher's slipcase. Fading along the spine (as usual), and at the finger-pull on the front panel, otherwise a very good copy in somewhat faded and marked slipcase. An important association copy First edition, limited issue. One of 75 numbered hardbound copies. (Only 90 copies of the entire edition were hardbound, with 15 containing original drawings by Grace Hartigan; not all of the hardbound copies were signed by O'Hara). Presentation copy, inscribed on the front free endpaper by O'Hara to his good friend and sometime collaborator, second-generation Abstract Expressionist painter Mike Goldberg: "For Mike - Happy Birthday and I hope the Houses & Odes go on and on into 1262 - Frank". As members of the New York School of poets and painters, O'Hara and Goldberg traveled in the same circles and had many friends in common, all of whom knew each other's work well. O'Hara encouraged Goldberg in his painting and persuaded John Myers to give Goldberg his first - and last - show at Tibor de Nagy Gallery in October 1953. Later, O'Hara included Goldberg's "Summer House" (1958) in his "Documenta II '59" show in Kassel, Germany. Goldberg figures in, or inspires, a number of poems by O'Hara including "Ode to Michael Goldberg ('s Birth and Other Births)" (1958), "On Rachmaninoff's Birthday & About Arshile Gorky" (1963), and, most famously, "Why I Am Not A Painter" (1956). O'Hara and Goldberg collaborated on the volume Odes, which combines O'Hara's poetry and five original screen prints by Goldberg, a livre d'artiste published by the Tiber Press in 1960. In 1962, Goldberg made a series of paintings on paper, "Dear Diary", that refract the contents of letters and postcards by O'Hara he received while O'Hara was traveling in Europe. Russell Ferguson writes, "Goldberg's desire to mirror O'Hara's travels in paint reflects the closeness of their relationship." - Ferguson, In Memory of My Feelings: Frank O'Hara and American Art.
