New York: Douglas Links, 1973. 1st Edition. Octavo, publisher's illustrated stiff paper wraps.
Compilation of quotations by luminaries from the worlds of literature, philosophy, politics, art, rock and roll, Hollywood, and beyond, comprising a counterculture sourcebook and snapshot of a zeitgeist in transition: "Sometimes it seems that it is not possible to do more than reflect the decay around and within us, than sing sad and bitter songs of disillusion and defeat" (R.D. Laing). Edited by Pulitzer Prize-winning cartoonist and graphic novelist Spiegelman (his first book, published shortly before he launched his underground magazine Arcade: A Comics Revue with Bill Griffith); and cultural commentator and McSweeney's columnist Schneider. Wraps illustrated by Spiegelman. Light rubbing to wraps, with minor wear to exremities. Very good. Item #420
