[38x33cm] David Bailey's celebrated collection of 36 photographs of people who 'have gone all out for the immediate rewards of success: quick money, quick fame, quick sex'. The collection is housed in its original clamshell box, lacking the 'Packing Piece - To Be Thrown Away'. The box has been strengthened along the spine with white cloth with the original printed paper spine laid down over the cloth; a few marks and stains to the covers of the box. Internally all 36 images are present with the commentaries by Francis Wyndham printed on the reverse, generally in fine condition with the following notes: Terence Stamp, a couple of brown spots to recto and verso; Bongo Wolf, small black spot to white background; Rolling Stones, scuffing to corners, probably where hung for display; Lennon and McCartney, cuddle-shot, similar grazes to corners (who wouldn't hang this for display?); Nureyev and Beaton, old fold across Beaton's hat. The collection and its box as issued are now housed in a large, protective, drop back white morocco-spined solander box and slipcase. This is the only printing of this collection and it was never released in the United States, apparently on account of the inclusion of the Kray brothers among the images. The half tone photographs are superbly produced and include some of the best known images of Michael Caine in door-blowing form, Paul McCartney, John Lennon and Mick Jagger among the models, couturiers and aristocrats who made London swing.
