A Few Palm Trees

Ruscha, Edward

[Los Angeles]

[Heavy Industry Publications]



Illustrated throughout from photographs of various palm trees in Los Angeles. 18x14 cm (7x5½"), black glossy wrappers. First Edition.

Laid in is a printed "Compliments of Edward Ruscha" card. Each of the palm trees is identified as to its location. The last half of the book is blank, as issued, apparently to bulk it out for proper binding. Or perhaps they just ran out of palm trees.

Lot Amendments

Edgewear and other light wear to wrappers; interior fine, or nearly so.
