Claxton's first publication - signed

First edition, first printing. Extremely uncommon collection of the great photographer's superb evocations of the West Coast jazz scene, his first publication, this copy boldly signed by Claxton on the half-title.

Art-directed by Lee Friedlander and Stuart Fox, edited by Claxton himself together with Nesuhi Ertegun, soon to be VP at Atlantic, and Richard Bock, founder of Pacific Jazz, who had hired Claxton as his art director, and for whose enterprises this would appear to be a promotional item. Library Hub locates twelve copies, ten in the US and two in Europe, one of them at the US Information Service in Rome.
