Mexico City [London]: Vernac Press, [1960s]. Perfect-bound with plain cardstock wrappers (title written in marker), side-stapled; once bound with cloth tape, which has ghosted the space it once occupied. Light shelfwear; pen marks to back cover. Very good.
Approx. 6.5 x 8". 69pp. A "Soho typescript," or "Soho bible" - pornographic fiction, mimeographed from typescript, text printed on one side only. Printed clandestinely and sold "under the counter" in pornography's great time-honored tradition.
