Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror. Poems
New York: The Viking Press, 1975. Fine/Near Fine. First edition. Fine in very near fine dustwrapper with a touch of rubbing. Advance Review Copy with publisher's slip and promotional letter laid in. Inscribed by the author to fellow poet Daniel Hoffman: "for Dan Hoffman with my best, John Ashbery 11/11/76." Hoffman's first collection of poems, An Armada of Thirty Whales (1954), was chosen for the Yale Series of Younger Poets by W.H. Auden. In addition to publishing several other volumes of poetry and important works of criticism, he also later served as the Consultant in Poetry of the Library of Congress (the equivalent of the United States Poet Laureate) in 1973-1974.. This book won the Putlitzer Prize, the National Book Award, and the National Book Critics Circle Award. A nice copy with a nice association.
