London (Signed First Edition).

Verona: Editrice SAF, 1969. First Edition. Large quarto. SIGNED and inscribed in Italian by Butturini. An incredible photobook capturing the seedier side of 1969 swinging London. Butturini's stark black and white images connect London's gritty street life with the emerging counterculture youth tribes in a photographic vision that is both Dickensian and modernist. The self-published book opens with a quote from Robert Capa and poetry by Allen Ginsberg; Italian texts by Butturini and Luciano Modini follow. Martin Parr credits the book as containing some of his favorite images of the capital, while Gerry Badger notes that the photography is "more Don McCullin than David Bailey" (Parr / Badger, v. 3, 154-155). Light handling creases to a couple of the interior pages along with some associated small nicks visible on adjoining pages, otherwise near fine in a near fine price-clipped jacket. Scarce, OCLC locates a single copy at the National Library of Australia.
