Single staple at upper left corner. 11 ¾ by 8 3/8 inches. 11 leaves, printed primarily on versos only, with the last leaf printed on the recto as well. Black and white photos throughout. A single issue of this influential punk fanzine, featuring interviews and articles on Eddie and the Hot Rods, Subway Sect, Chelsea and others. With a short section reviewing other fanzines, giving a poor and scathing review of 'Punk,' and a glowing review of 'Ripped and Torn.' A Chelsea pin-up makes up the last leaf. Founded by Mark Perry, this zine ran for a total of 14 issues and 'identified itself as for punks and a mouthpiece for their music and anger.' (Triggs p. 50). Sniffin' Glue incorporated and instigated the DIY style associated with the punk movement and fanzines, influencing many future fanzines, while using traditional press reporting techniques undercut with subversive humor. Jon Savage notes 'Perry […] committed his magazine to a populist, accessible aesthetic, with unforeseen results,' with Perry commenting, 'If I say this in the Glue, it's going to happen.' (Savage, England's Dreaming). POOR condition. Front cover DETACHED, with moderate creasing to and some small tears along the extremities. Date in blue ink on the upper front cover, with the date circled in the same ink. Some curling along the corners of the rest of the piece, with minor browning and scattered soiling and creasing. Rear wrapper browned, with a few small spots of foxing. (Triggs, p. 50-51; Berniere and Primois p. 223-224; Savage p. 202). Bookseller Inventory #
