About this Item

FIRST EDITION, SIGNED AND INSCRIBED BY MULAS on the half-title: "ad mio dottore Harry Grabstald, con affetto Ugo Mulas N.Y. M.H. 1972." A MAGNIFICENT COPY IN THE SCARCE SLIPCASE. Mulas's classic photographic study of the vibrant New York art scene in the 1960s, illustrated with over 500 photographs of major artists including Roy Lichtenstein, Jasper Johns, Marcel Duchamp, Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, and many others. "Inspired by the strong American presence at the 1964 Venice Biennale, the Italian photographer Ugo Mulas made three extended visits to New York over the following years. The result [is this] massive, handsomely designed volume [that] captures the art world at one of its most volatile and vivid peaks.[Mulas] was ideally suited to infiltrate that scene as a sympathetic and unobtrusive observer.With more than 500 photos reproduced in heavily inked, knockout black-and-white, the book has a marvelous scope. Its arresting cover image-a pair of New York cops confronting a gaggle of bohemians at a party in Andy Warhol's Factory-isn't typical, but it suggests something of the scene's exhilaration and notoriety." (Vince Aletti; Roth 101). Text by Alan Solomon. New York: Holt, Rinehart, Winston, 1967. Quarto, original linen, original photo-illustrated dust jacket; original cardboard slipcase. Book fine, extremely bright dust jacket in outstanding condition with only two tiny closed tears at top of spine end and small, nearly invisible tape reinforcement on verso spine ends and flap fold. Small circular orange sticker over price. An exceptional copy - the finest we've handled - of an extremely difficult book to find in collectible condition, very scarce signed and with the original slipcase. Bookseller Inventory # 1516
