I was initiated into the face of Yankee public power through the pages of the then(1970s) radical & radiating music rag, Rolling Stone. And no one tapped the arteries of power gone awry more than the curious & formiable coupling of Hunter S Thompson & Ralph Steadman. Steadman's career seemed allied to Thompson's throughout the 70s, their frenzies wedded to Nixon's political campaigns, & cavorts with Hell's Angels. Occasionally, tucked away in Letters To The Editor, we sampled Steadman's bizarre philosophy in erratically numbered,'Gardening hints.' For a suitably distorted biography of the guy, his 'Between the Eyes' is an excellent primer. You'll see he names the German dadaists as his forebears. George Grosz springs to mind. But Ronald Searle & the Goons lurk midst his mordant wit. 'I Leonardo', 'Sigmund Freud','Alice In Wonderland' list amongst his achievements. His is an ego that needs larger than life subjects to vent his rage. It comes as something of a relief to find him in less than overdrive with the hilarious & intimately observed collection,'Dog's Bodies.' It's a manual on coping with dogs: the full Heinz catastrophe, & should be available with your mutt's licence. If, like me, you've been intimidated by dogs, felt their rabid fangs in your flesh, or had your sleep reduced by their lunitic howling, you'll revel in Steadman's advice for doggy discipline. His signature splatter techniques & ejaclatory ink-blobs often proclaim a defiance to a hostile world. These marks find a natural target in the scumbag arena of Dogland.

Once upon a time, some 35 years ago, I bought a pamphlet of dogs in funny, as well as disgusting drawing. Still in the 'who am I stage', I made the difficult decision to rid myself of the book because of offensive drawings of dogs that might be enjoyed by those who get off on torturing dogs.

Over the past decade I have tried to locate this book, been sent bogus 1977 versions without the drawing I seek, can get no info, or (actually) continue to get info from those in London having the 1970 edition, that the drawing in question does not exist, not in any edition.

Knowing less than zero about the publishing world, I have looked to solve this mystery. I have multiple reasons why I now want it. They all conform to my politics and to those espoused by Mr. Steadman back in the day...

I was offered, for $400, some new pamphlet of works from his pub dept.,that supposedly includes a signed never opened copy of this 1970 London edition, but even if I had $400 to spend so frivously, I wouldn't risk it. Since almost none of Mr. Steadman's books can be peeked inside on Amazon, the net or ANYWHERE, I have no way to find out if this is a creation of my imagination that lasted these 35-40 years, and most oddly, no one will confirm it.

The drawing, covered over 2 pages I think, the last 2 pages of a small 36 page pamphlet as I recall, has an enormous obese aristocratic dog. He is taking a poop onto a plate held under his butt by a starving, terrified, crazed and emaciated dog. (Many will see the attraction to this drawing that so sums up out times and folly, survival being left to the enormous anxieties of all our future generations and kin, to figure out--even Ralph, if it ever existed).
