“I FIND MY PURSUIT OF PLEASURE IS RELENTLESS

MANVILLE, Bill. Saloon Society. New York: Duell, Sloan and Pearce, (1960). Octavo, original black cloth, original dust jacket. $500.

First edition of Manville’s novelistic “diary of a year beyond aspirin,” with black-and-white photographs by David Attie.

Based on Manville’s weekly column for the Village Voice, Saloon Society offers readers vivid glimpses of life “among the broken glasses, empty bottles, full ashtrays, drunks and passed-outs” through the eyes of fictional protagonist A. E. Kugelman. Numerous black-and-white photographs by David Attie, many full-page, illustrate the text.

Dust jacket with light rubbing, closed tear to front panel, tape repairs to verso. A near-fine copy. Scarce.
