Some Los Angeles Apartments. Photographs by Ed Ruscha. Published by the artist, 1965. FIRST PRINTING. Total edition of 700 copies. (Reprinted in 1970 in a much larger edition of 3000 copies). INSCRIBED, 'Hey ____/Ed Ruscha' (association to a well-known LA curator--please inquire). 48 pp. Duodecimo (7 x 5.5 in.). Stiff printed wrappers. 34 black-and-white reproductions. Original glassine protector.

NOTE: Due to fragile nature of this book, interior shots below are taken from Sylvia Wolf, Ed Ruscha and Photography.

Ruscha's third artist's book and the first to deal with the vernacular architecture of Los Angeles. Predates Every Building on Sunset Strip by a year. An extremely rare SIGNED first printing!

"It is thanks to Ruscha's having recorded these structures in 1965 — and in many cases having provided the inspiration for others to photograph similar subjects — that we find ourselves today more observant and appreciative of the architecture that so unassumingly but definitively influences our experiences of the city."-- Virginia Heckert, curator Ed Ruscha and Some Los Angeles Apartments, quoted on the NPR blog, The Picture Show

A Fine, crisp copy in typically tanned glassine; tiny chip at crown of spine.
