New York: Delacorte Press, 1974. First edition. Hardcover. 296 p. Textual photographs and illustrations. New York: Delacorte Press/Seymour Lawrence, 1974. First edition. "Journalist, party girl, bookworm, artist, muse: by the time she'd hit thirty, Eve Babitz had played all of these roles. Immortalized as the nude beauty facing down Duchamp and as one of Ed Ruscha's Five 1965 Girlfriends, Babitz's first book showed her to be a razor-sharp writer with tales of her own. Eve's Hollywood is an album of vivid snapshots of Southern California's haute bohemians, of outrageously beautiful high-school ingenues and enviably tattooed Chicanas, of rock stars sleeping it off at the Chateau Marmont" (New York Review Books). Octavo. Original black cloth binding, with pink and silver stamping. This copy is inscribed by Mae Babitz, the author's mother, to Helen Wurdemann, longtime director of the Los Angeles Art Association, on the front flyleaf. Light bump to the top of the front board. Some general shelfwear to the dust jacket, with a bit of chipping at the corners and tips; else very good. Scarce. Very Good / Very Good. Item #63483
