Mother Camp – Female Impersonators In America [Jill Johnston’s copy]

Newton, Esther


Violet cloth boards, 8vo, 136 pages w/ dustjacket. Condition issues: book is Very Good + but for some fading to covers, and top edge somewhat darkened. The DJ is considerably worn with chips and closed tears & tiny pieces missing from top edge; sunning to spine as well as to a lesser extent front and rear covers; in all Good+. This all said this copy hails from the library of the late great Jill Johnston (1929-2010), critic, radical lesbian feminist and champion of the avant-garde, and it bears her distinctive stamp in blue ink on title page which reads “Write first. then live.” J.J. / Johnston has also written her name — quite unusual — on the front free endpaper. Newton at time of publication was Associate Professor of Anthropology at SUNY Purchase.
