My Favourite London Devils (Two Editions)

London, England: Tangerine Press, 2016. First Edition / Limited Edition Hardcover. Hardcover / Softcover. 1/26 Lettered Hardcovers Signed by Iain Sinclair and Illustrator Dave McKean. "Kerouac's abortive European tour, that spring [1957], proved to be his last season as a writer who existed inside the protective and self-affirming nest of unpublished fiction: before the devastating flash-exposure of fame. With that much-delayed arrival of 'On the Road,' here was success, hungry and insatiable, on a scale unprecedented until you go back to Scott Fitzgerald, another drinker destroyed by his status as the voice of a generation. Prophesies that can be confirmed only by the public death, in shame and obscurity, of the nominated author. Stupid arguments in Florida bars for Jack, redneck roleplay: 'Miami Vice' in a lumberjack shirt, untucked over the impressive contours of a beer gut. And, in Fitzgerald's case, Hollywood hackdom. Faustian contracts celebrated in baths of Tokay wine..." (pg. 157-158). Iain Sinclair's "My Favourite London Devils" is another classic in his expansive and celebrated oeuvre. Offered here is the signed and lettered limited edition of 26 signed by both Sinclair and illustrator Dave McKean, who has worked with The Rolling Stones, Elton John, John Cale and others. The lettered and signed edition is still in the publisher's wrapping and we have chosen to keep it as such. An exceedingly rare Tangerine Press publication. Both books in as new condition. As New / as new. [Item #3060]
