(RUSCHA, EDWARD). Ruscha, Edward. THIRTYFOUR PARKING LOTS IN LOS ANGELES (EXHIBITION COPY). Los Angeles. 1967 (1974).: Self-Published, Second Edition 1/2000. 4to. Printed Wrappers. Artist's Book. Very Good (With Exception)./No Jacket - As Issued.. np (48pp), 34 b&w photographs (1 die-cut and folded). "Thirtyfour Parking Lots in Los Angeles" is Ed Ruscha's fifth photographically illustrated artist book, and the largest in format of his self-published works of the sixties. For it, Mr. Ruscha presciently hired local aerial photographer Art Alanis to capture grand, bird's eye views of the parking lots of the likes of Universal City, The May Company, Dodger Stadium, and thirty-one more - all completely devoid of cars! An otherwise handsome example of the 1974 second edition (entry B5 in Siri Engberg's "Edward Ruscha: Editions 1959-1999" which is also cited on page 141 of Martin Parr and Gerry Badger's "The Photobook: A History Volume II", pages 198-201 of The Hasselblad Center's "The Open Book", and page 227 of "From Fair to Fine 3") limited to two thousand unnumbered copies issued without a glassine wrapper showing some light sunning and age-toning to the covers that was used as a display copy for an Ed Ruscha museum exhibition, and had a 1/16" hole drilled cleanly through the covers and textblock near the top of the spine to anchor it within a vitrine. It is an otherwise Very Good condition copy with no institutional markings of any kind that has been priced accordingly.
