Signed Limited Edition. The catalogue for Andy Warhol's first major European retrospective. Illustrated card covers, with a design after Warhol's 'Flowers' silk-screen. All edges gilt. Housed in the purpose made perspex slipcase, as issued. 614 black-and-white reproductions, divided into three sections: black-and-white reproductions of Warhol's work, followed by two sections of photographs of Warhol and his associates by Billy Name and Stephen Shore. A lovely near fine copy, with only light rubbing to the wrapper extremities and a faint creasing to the spine. The contents are clean and complete, without loose or torn pages and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Two pages with tiny upper right corner crease. The fragile perspex slipcase remains solid and in original condition with a few light scratches. Housed in a bespoke solander case. An excellent example of this landmark Warhol publication, offered here in its rarest form.
The deluxe signed issue of Warhol's legendary Stockholm Exhibition Catalogue. Signed by Warhol in black ink on the title page. It is unknown exactly how many were issued in this signed gilt edged deluxe edition, most estimate around 50 copies and others possibly as many as 100. Whatever the number, intact examples of this issue in attractive original condition are rare in commerce. (Parr & Badger: The Photobook II, p.144-145).
