        Tulsa

      1979. First Edition . Signed. CLARK, Larry. Tulsa. (New York: Rapoport [Lustrum Press], 1971 [i.e. 1979]). Slim folio, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $2000.Signed limited first hardbound edition of ClarkÂ’s shocking first book, boldly signed and numbered “38/400” by Clark on the title page.“Clark set out in his photographs to try to tell the truth about the world and about himself” (Roth, 208). Tulsa is now a photography classic— the work that established ClarkÂ’s reputation, despite its limited exposure from a small print run. It documents the violent, desperate lives of “speed freaks” in the photographerÂ’s hometown, told from inside the story. Clark has innovatively collapsed the distance between the “objective observer” and his subjects. First published in 1971 by Ralph GibsonÂ’s Lustrum Press and produced with funds donated by Danny Seymour, whose own book A Loud Song was printed back-to-back with Tulsa. This is the first hardcover edition, bound by Clark in 1979 from the 1971 sheets. Roth, 208-09. Open Book, 272-73. Fine condition.
