First impression of the true first edition SIGNED by both authors on the half-title page (see scans) and limited to one thousand hand-numbered copies, of which this is number 694. Stamped on top of front free endpaper: 'This edition, signed by the authors, is limited to one thousand copies, of which this is number 694.' ***Profusely illustrated throughout with black and white photographs, drawings, lyrics and notes of and by Mark Bolan. ***Near fine in black cloth-covered boards with gilt titles to spine and front board. Lower corners of boards slightly bumped. Small bump to lower edge of front board. No other inscriptions. Very slight sporadic light foxing to fore-edge of text-block not affecting interior pages. Pages clean. Spine tight. ***In a near fine colour illustrated dustwrapper that has not been price-clipped, showing original publisher's price on bottom of rear panel of £25.00 net. Corners of dustwrapper very slightly creased and rubbed. Small surface indentation to rear panel of dustwrapper near spine. No tears. Very slightest hint of fading to the purple on the spine of dustwrapper. Front and rear panel and spine of dustwrapper bright. *** 176 pages. 252mm x 192mm. ***'Wilderness of the Mind is a celebration of Marc Bolan's life and work through a host of photographs, drawings, lyrics, notes and personal reminiscences, the vast majority of which have never been published before, making it a treasure-trove for fans and collectors - and an eye-opener for more casual admirers, as Marc's diaries and scribbles openly reveal his sexuality and early way of life. ***Many of the photographs were taken by co-author Caron, and are published here for the first time. There are dozens of pieces, lyrics, notes, letters, diaries and drawings in Marc's own hand, many given personally by Marc to Caron, or to Caron and John by Marc's parents after his death. Few of these have been seen before. ***Among those interviewed exclusively for the book are Mike Pruskin, Marc's friend and early manager ("No-one has ever interviewed me before, and I'm the one who got Marc his first recording contract!"); Andy Ellison, co-member of "John's Children"; Marc's manager Tony Howard, who has remained silent until now and who also contributes an approving foreword for the book; and Mike Mansfield, producer of 'Supersonic' and other notable rock shows, who talks about Marc's showmanship and their friendship. And in a piece written especially for this book Morrissey offers a charming appreciation of his early hero ("I can't cleverly theorize about Marc: I just loved him."). ***The book also includes a detailed look at Marc's TV and film appearances, plus Caron's first-hand recollections of the eventful T. Rex tours of 1976-7; and an unexpurgated look at life on the road, in particular the "Futuristic Dragon" tour on which Marc was struggling with a drink problem during every performance, and also his comeback during the "Dandy in The Underworld" tour of 1977 just before his tragic and untimely death, when there was so much more in prospect. **Finally, a critical listing of Marc's records offers reliable guidance to his legacy, with many fascinating details for collectors and hitherto unpublished notes and lyrics in Marc's own handwriting giving amazing insights into his creative mind at work.' (Quote from inside front and rear of jacket blurb). ***This is the first impression of the true first edition signed by both authors, No. 694 of one thousand limited, numbered copies, complete in its original dustwrapper, hard to find in such nice, collectable condition. Of interest to academics and musicians researching rock music history, and collectors of Marc Bolan, T. Rex and rock music first editions. ***Scarce. ***For all our books, postage is charged at cost, allowing for packaging: any shipping rates indicated on ABE are an average only: we will reduce the P & P charge where appropriate - please contact us for postal rates for heavier books and sets etc. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 3072
