The poet, rock legend and Nobel laureate Bob Dylan (b. 1941) catapulted to fame as an American folk singer and songwriter in the 1960s and he has been an icon of popular culture ever since. He is the first songwriter to ever receive the Nobel Prize and he is perhaps the biggest living name in modern rock music, and this is also reflected in the countless books written about him. The book collection contains books from the 1960s to the present.

Provenance: The collection has been collected through the last 4 decades by a Danish fan.
