Contents in superb condition, the white box shows some very minor dust soiling. with five small brown marks to the lid, only a single split to one bottom corner. A lovely example. First edition, sole impression. This seminal collection of portraits by Bailey is one of the great iconic representations of the Swinging Sixties in London. The subjects typify the newly formed social elite ranging from the Beatles and the Rolling Stones through minor royalty and groovy aristos to film stars, couturiers and gangsters. The mode of publication also hints at a new democratisation. The printing is of lovely quality but photomechanical which meant the cost could be kept down to just three guineas. Copies of this important publication in such nice shape as this complete with both packing inserts have become quite scarce.

        A Dialogue With Solitude

      New York: Community Press, 1965. Binding a little slack, else near fine in a close to near fine jacket with a tear to the top of the rear panel, worn a bit at the spine head.. First Edition. Quarto. A fine early presentation copy, SIGNED by Heath and INSCRIBED: "To JoAnn Frank / Whose spirit belongs to / the ranks of photography / Dave Heath / 3 November 1967." Heath's first and only major monograph, rescued from the scrap heap of obscurity by Michael Torosian's brilliant reissue in 2000. Prior to the resurrection, Dialogue was probably the greatest unknown American photobook, and Heath, while revered amongst photographers for his emotional and technical brilliance, had yet to become widely collected. The bridge in American photography between Robert Frank and Larry Clark, and one of the most gripping American photobooks ever published. (Parr / Badger, v2, 104; Auer 444).
