The Gaudy Image, by WilliamTalsman
Second edition, but first UK edition, a secondhand book from the famous Traveller's Companion Series edited by Mauris Girodias through his Olympia Press. A secondhand book in good condition, light age wearing to corners of covers, light stain to lower spine. "An early, pre-Stonewall classic of gay literature, describing life among the community in New Orleans. Thomas Schwartz (aka Titania, Queen of the Fairies), wanders about in search of the Gaudy Image, a most masculine man who knows what he wants."
