(1983) · New York
by [Music]. BOCKRIS, Victor and Gerard Malanga
New York: Quill, (1983). First Edition. Wraps. Very good +. Small 4to. Perfect-bound photographic wraps. Very good plus to near fine. INSCRIBED by both Bockris and Malanga on title page, for Bob Colacello: "Dear Bob, in remembrance of things past / with regards Gerard. And: "Dear Bob, hope you enjoy this faithful record / Best Victor Bockris / May 85 NYC." Wrappers show some very mild edgewear; trivial trace rubbing. Interior remains bright, clean, and unmarked throughout; binding sound. 127pp.
Significant association copy between the authors and Colacello, longtime editor of INTERVIEW. A thorough biography of the Velvets, based on extended interviews with all of its members, and whose authors were deeply involved with the scene (particularly with Warhol), as was Colacello. A warm association between these three Factory regulars. (Inventory #: 22228)
