Question
What is the first published book on Led Zeppelin

Answer
Hi Paul

To my knowledge, technically the first one was a song book, prematurely titled "Led Zeppelin Complete".  It was published in 1973, and contained the sheet music for most of their first five albums.  From a more biographical angle, the earliest one on my radar was by Ritchie York, called "The Led Zeppelin Biography" from 1976.  The qualifier here is that these are the earliest ones I'm aware of - there may have been some long out-of-print, small-scale book published prior to those years.

Regards,
Mike
