A hilarious and accurate guidebook to all kinds of sexual and immoral activities in NYC in the 1960s:

New York Unexpurgated
by Petronius
Matrix House, NY, 1966
first edition
Black and multicolor dustjacket
Black and multicolor bookboards
246+ pages
8.5" x 5.5"

Written in the swinging 60s. A helpful guide to the underside of Manhattan as it was then: its clubs, discos, cults, dressing rooms, drag queens, YMCAs, swinger clubs and secret hangouts, gay and lesbian pickup spots and more.

Meticulously researched by a self-professed libertine who wrote with a dry wit and somewhat wet enthusiasm. He tracked down the orgies, fetish boutiques, the department stores where the clerks are all in drag (unbeknownst to the clientele), the blue movie theatres of all stripes, the best places to fence hot items or launder money, and where to any kind of action you want.

Part is written under subjects such as "Going Down in Gotham" and other chapters. Part is an A to Z guide. There's so many variations on the sleaze factor it's almost dizzying, and a lot of fun to read.

Excellent condition. The dust jacket has some wear. The book is pristine and clean.
