Book Description George G.Harrap & Co Ltd, London England, 1969. Cloth. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Fair. First Edition. Hardcover. First Edition. Young London. Permissive Paradise. Wear and tear to edges of D/J. Repair to D/J. Waterstain mark to back of D/J. A very good and scarce book in very good condition . Photographs by Frank Habicht. What is happening to London? Is it wicked or creative, lazy or productive, a sign of decadence or a cause for hope? Is Young London of the 1960s the new earthly paradise or is it plummeting into premature destruction? These are the questions which German-born photographer Frank Habicht poses in a series of wide-ranging and varied studies of contemporary London. He comments on the long-standing controversy surrounding this phenomenon with the freshness that only an outsider can bring to bear. We see the fashion-crazy secretaries, the pop singers, the bedazzled drifters, the naive exhibitionists, the au pairs, the political activists, the student politicians, the young intellectuals, life's earnest adventurers and the disenchanted derelicts, the soap-box soothsayers, the strippers, the eager young thinks and the sweet young things, the with-it rush-abouts and the hangers-on, the mod bride and groom, the young lovers, the gimmick-mongers - the countless faces of the complex and inconsistent phenomenon called Young London. Habicht is all for youth and discovery but his lens is essentially neutral and painfully truthful. It offers the evidence and leaves the verdict to the reader. The photographs are prefaced by two introductory essays, one a defence of Long London, the other an attack on it, which offers a background to Habicht's silent observations. Both a trophy and a chronicle pf the 'sixties', his series of photographs is a part of the very scene which it records. Illustrated throuhgout. (We carry a wide selection of titles in The Arts, Theology, History, Politics, Social and Physical Sciences. Academic and Scholarly books and Modern First Editions ,and all types of Educational Reference Literature.) Size: 4to - over 9¾" - 12" Tall Quarto. Hardback. Seller Inventory # 100622
