1.1 kg; VI, 618 pages, dark blue end pages, the edges of the text block uniformly a honey brown from exposure to light, the back strip section of the dust jacket is quite a bright pink does not appear to be the result of fading. There is a blemish in the front panel of the dust jacket just below the author's name under the letter " B". This book is an exhilarating evocation of the private and public obsessions of Britain in the 1960s. It is the decade of the Lady Chatterley case, the Profumo scandal and the first Harold Wilson government. In the author's vision residing genius of the 1960s seems to be a blend of the Marquis de Sade and The Hobbit. -- front fold over blurb (in my mind that description fits Andy Warhol.)
