We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. AbeBooks has millions of books. We've listed similar copies below.

Description:

Unpaginated. Stated First Printing on copyright pg. many black & white photos depicting suburban life in Livermore Amador Valley in the early '70's. many with hysterical captions by the participants. Contents tight, clean, without names nor marks. There is one pale stain on half-title page, very small, 1/8" x 3/4" tear-drop shaped. Photo-pictorial cover is clean, sharp with very slight shelf-wear. The rear cover lower corner has a diagonal crease (measures 7") which affects the last 3 pages of contents. There is also a very slight ,short horizontal crease at very bottom of the last several pages, barely noticable.The pictorial stiff wraps do not have any sign of lamination. Slight rubbing to edges. Book is protected in acetate wrapper which I produced (did not come with book originallly). Bill Owens has signed his name on the half-title page above the photo image. A classic in cult photography, scarce as a signed, true first printing. Despite stated flaws, the overall look to this volume is quite nice. Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall.
