Edition originale Signé
Etat : Near Fine. Etat de la jaquette : Very Good. First Edition. First edition of Hollywood Babylon in the original French language, printed in Paris six years before the American edition. Signed by Kenneth Anger and inscribed to a former owner on the title page. Bound in publisher's original plain brown wraps with photo-illustrated dust jacket, profusely photo-illustrated. Near Fine with lean to binding and toning to wraps at top and bottom edges. In a Very Good dust jacket with sunning to the pink spine type, light scratches to the surface, edge wear with chipping and some loss. The first appearance of Kenneth Anger's sensationalist swipe at Hollywood, packed with photos, gritty detail, and innuendo. The 1966 American printing was suppressed but a 1975 reissue brought it public, albeit not critical, acclaim. The book became a controversial classic of film history.
