Kenneth Anger, Hollywood Babylon, First US APS Paperback Edition (1965)

£250.00

POPT post about this title The story of Kenneth Anger’s Hollywood Babylon

The first English language edition of underground film maker’s notorious expose of Tinseltown’s dark side. It would be banned 10 days after publication….and not republished in a revised and censored form until 1975 !

The rarest edition of Anger’s most infamous book. Given the different editions vary  so drastically in terms of size,  format. layout, not to mention language,  trying to correlate the contents is near impossible -each edition is different.

APS – Associated Professional Services, Inc. – A.P.S., Phoenix, AZ, 1965. Mass Market Paperback 272 Pages, B&W photos throughout

Condition is VG++ : The spine is  still red and unfaded,  Most are a shade of  pink ! There is a chip at the top- see photo. The spine on these are weak, it needs to be handled with care and not fully opened. Pages aren’t too tanned. This is best copy I’ve handled of this edition. A copy with a heavily faded spine is listed online – at time of writing-  $500.00
