ALEAXANDER GOODMAN (pseud.) [HAIMSOHN, George]

The gay psychedelic sex book : collages and limericks

  • Sold

[Washington, D.C.] : Guild Press, 1967. First edition, first printing. Oblong octavo, pictorial wrappers, staple bound, [46] pp, homoerotic photo collages with an accompanying limerick (including one about “A blond young Australian named Dennis”) on each page; light staining to front, otherwise a fine copy.

The Guild Press, owned and run by H. Lynn Womack, was possibly the first gay-owned publishing house devoted exclusively to the publication of gay materials. (See Patricia Juliana Smith, The Queer Sixties. New York : Routledge, 1999, pp.37-40).

A rare example of uncensored sixties gay erotica; OCLC locates only six copies (all in North American libraries).
