First published edition, first printing, one of about 1,500 copies printed. This landmark collection defined the discontented voice of its epoch for a generation. It is Ginsberg’s first regularly published book, preceded only by the privately produced mimeographed printing of the title poem, and the rather obscure Siesta in Xbalba.

Duodecimo. Original black and white wrappers, stapled as issued. Wrappers toned to edges with some light marks, small strip torn from head of rear cover, occasional spotting to contents. An excellent copy.
