The Original Transcript (The Court Reporter's Minutes) of a 1966 Peter Orlovsky New York Trial
Criminal Court of the City of New York, 1966. Document. Very Good +. A surreal piece of 1960s New York history. The original transcript ("Court Reporter's Minutes") of a December 1966 trial between poet Peter Orlovsky and New York Patrolman Dominick Vetrano over a contested parking ticket issued to Orlovsky on August 16th, 1966 on East 10th Street (between Avenue C and D). Orlovsky, who's representing himself at the trial, offers up several convoluted --almost intentionally comical-- arguments and cross-examinations. Alas, he's ultimately found guilty and is forced to pay the $10 fine. The transcript, an 11-page typed document in its bolted official wrappers, is bright and VG to VG+, with light creasing --and very light staining-- along the panel edges. The trail was held at the Criminal Court of the City of New York, was presided over by the Hon. Morton R. Tolleris and has been signed in ink at the end of the text by the "Official Court Reporter" Natalie Alston. [Attributes: First Edition]
