Of Being Numerous
New York: New Directions, 1968. Octavo. Red cloth over grey boards in pictorial dust wrapper, some rippling on the back due to moisture damage, not affecting the book itself. 64 pages. First edition. Very good.
The book that won Oppen the Pulitzer in 1969. Notoriously afflicted by production defects, this is a handsome and tight copy of a typically shoddy title.
"To dream of that beach
For the sake of an instant in the eyes,
The absolute singular
The unearthly bonds
Of the singular
Which is the bright light of shipwreck"
