Regretfully, due to Covid-19, we have decided to cancel all fairs up until the end of September.
Book Description
First UK edition, first printing. Inscribed presentation copy, with the author’s holograph corrections. Original blue cloth with gilt titles to spine, in dustwrapper. A very good copy, the binding square and firm with some rubbing at the extremities and a bumping to the top edge. The contents are entirely complete and with the exception of a few very light foxing spots to the prelims clean throughout. Four pages of Visions Of Gerard have pencilled corrections to the text in the author’s hand. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked, price-clipped dustwrapper which has a couple of short closed tears.
Dealer Notes
Inscribed by the author in blue ink on the front free endpaper “To Dr. John Ross / from grateful customer / Jack Kerouac / March 4, 1965 / St. Pete”. Rare in inscribed presentation state. The earlier authorial corrections within the text give reason to believe that this copy was one of the Kerouac’s own.
