KANDEL, Lenore. The Love Book.

(San Francisco, CA): Stolen Paper Review Editions, 1961. First edition. Small square quarto. 6 pages. Later issue with blue over-stamp and endpapers in red, $1 price stamp to rear cover. Controversial work that weaves together themes of sex, zen, and the political and cultural climate of the sixties. San Francisco police inspectors arrested workers at the Psychedelic Book Shop and at City Lights Bookstore for selling the book the trial concluded that “The Love Book” was obscene and had “no redeeming social value.” In 1971, however, the verdict was overturned. This is a very good copy in stapled wrappers.
