Description: (ARION PRESS.) O''Hara, Frank; and Jim Dine. Biotherm (For Bill Berkson). Essay and glossary by Bill Berkson. 42 lithographs by Jim Dine. 575x402 mm; 22 5/8x15 inches (sheets), full margins. Folio, contents loose as issued in red cloth portfolio box, two faint stains on cover; minor soft crease to lower title-page. San Francisco, 1964

Notes: number 36 of 150 copies signed by dine from a total edition of 180. Biotherm is the last long poem by O''Hara, written shortly before his accidental death in 1966 at age 40. The poet and critic Bill Berkson, who died in June of this year and to whom the poem is addressed, provided the essay and compiled a glossary to explicate the references in the poem and to recount the circumstances of its writing. The text was printed on English mouldmade paper on a hot-press finish and the lithographic work was done by Phelps-Schaefer, Brisbane, California.
