Frank Habicht; Heather Cremonesi, Robert Bruce (intrs) | Young London: Permissive Paradise | George G. Harrap | 1969 | A hard to obtain book in extremely poor condition. The book is from the collection of an artist, & has evidently been used for reference in the studio, with grubby paint-spattered boards. The boards are heavily worn, & bumped at the corners, heavily so in the case of the lower outer corner: there is a corresponding wobble at the lower tip of the pages. A tear extends about 3 cm into the outer edge of photo 33. The pages containing photos 34-35, 39-40, 47-48 have been removed. The page containing photos 56-57 has been removed from the book, & loosely replaced in absolutely ruined condition.
