San Francisco: City Publishing Company, Inc./Francis Ford Coppola, 1975. Magazine. 88p. including covers, 11x13 inches, illustrations, photos, articles, mild wear, oversized weekly magazine on newsprint, very good in stapled pictorial wraps.
First issue of the new incarnation of City of SF. The first 8 volumes the editors were never really certain what they wanted the magazine to be. Investor Coppola took over, put out a prototype to get new advertisers and in July 1975 published this issue continuing the volume and issue numbering for consistency. Tim Leary writes from Federal prison. Robertson exposes readers to Pittsburgh Phil at the races in "Hope Is Not a Sweaty Horse." The first installment of Fante's new novel, "Brotherhood of the Grape" is included and is the first appearance anywhere.
