The following fourteen lots are from The Personal Archives of Suze Rotolo.
Suze Rotolo was Bob Dylan's first significant love. In his recent memoirs Chronicles, Volume One Dylan described meeting her for the first time in New York in 1961 when she was only seventeen: "...She was the most erotic thing I'd ever seen...Cupid's arrow had whistled by my ears before, but this time it hit me in the heart and the weight of it dragged me overboard...meeting her was like stepping into the tales of 1,001 Arabian nights. She had a smile that could light up a street full of people and was extremely lively, had a particular type of voluptuousness - a Rodin sculpture come to life...".
Suze Rotolo dated Dylan at the very start of his career when he began recording with Columbia Records and is instantly recognisable as the girl walking with Dylan along a snowy Greenwich Village street on the cover of the Freewheelin' Bob Dylan album.
