New York: Coward-McCann, Inc., 1969. 1st US Edition. Large folio, publisher's black cloth, spine and upper board silver gilt, original dust jacket.
Fashion-photographer Bailey and journalist Evans's love letter to Swinging London: "Every era has its favourite capital and its final price: the Gay Nineties in Paris; the Twenties in Berlin; the Forties in Hollywood; La Dolce Vita Fifties in Rome. And the Sixties, at least for a while, belonged to London" (from the introduction). With luminous full-page black-and-white photos of the musicians, models, writers, actors and artists who made the world spin "as if in another orbit; almost in another time," including Julie Christie, Michael Caine, Marianne Faithful, the Rolling Stones, Jeanne Moreau, Dudley Moore, Rudolf Nureyev, Terence Stamp, Jean Shrimpton, Roman Polanski, Edna O'Brien, John Lennon, Franco Zeffirelli, Twiggy, and others too numerous to mention. Light edgewear to bottom edges of boards; dust jacket with light edgewear and minor chipping to spine-ends. Very good. Item #5
