Hollywood Babylon. Kenneth Anger.

Hollywood Babylon

Phoenix, AZ: Associated Professional Services, Inc., 1965. Original wraps. A remarkably crisp, bright copy of the 1965 1st English language (and by all accounts scarcest) edition of this underground classic. Clean and Near Fine in its iconic pictorial wrappers. Save for one light reading crease running along the spine and a small closed tear at the foot of the spine, this copy would legitimately border on as new. The covers are that pristine, the binding that tight. Thick pocket-sized, APS-9500. A book whose long-term importance is well-established, given its early, very effective mocking of the Hollywood dream. Kenneth Anger set his sites savagely (and, many would argue, appropriately) on the bloat and self-importance of Hollywood and created a timeless classic, a book in may ways that did for Hollywood what "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" did for Las Vegas. Near Fine. Item #17698

Price: $650.00
