The Bikeriders. Photographs by Danny Lyon. Introduction by Lyon. Interviews with bikeriders from taped interviews. Macmillan Co., New York; Collier-Macmillan Limited, London, 1968. 94 pp. Slim quarto. First edition. Hardbound in dust jacket. Numerous black-and-white illustrations.



In the niche of photo documentary that looks at American subcultures, Lyon's 1968 book ranks as a true classic. It is included in the "Roth 101", The Open Book, and The Photobook: A History, vol. I. As Parr and Badger write, "The Bikeriders, an important and influential work, was one of the first books to bring a new genre to late twentieth century photography...Lyon photographed communities from the inside, making them an integral part of his life for the duration of the project...[it] represented a significant step in 1960s American photography, not only launching an important photographic career, but also giving a younger generation of photographers a spokesman...understanding instinctively not only their hopes and aspirations, but also why they were rebelling against all kinds of adult authority."

Fine- with some wear to joint; in Near Fine dust jacket, edge wear and 1" tear with adjacent creasing and small chip at head of spine.
