Michael Perkins, nd. Unique. Hardcover. A superb and sumptuous handmade by book by Michael Perkins. Perkins, an English professor and novelist, was the author of the million-copy bestselling novelization of Deep Throat (noted as among the first pornographic films to feature a plot, character development, and relatively high production standards).

This volume was made for and inscribed to Charles Gatewood, with "to C from M" on the front cover (a letter from Gatewood will be provided to this effect).

The 254 unnumbered pages (6 blank) have been richly illustrated with pornographic images (images and cartoons from newspaper and magazines) together with original photographs.
