First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the half-title “For Alan with love – Jimmy, v. 85”. Alan Ansen (1922-2006) was a central figure in the loose collection of writers known as the Beats. He was close friends with Burroughs, Ginsberg and Kerouac, and was the inspiration for several of Kerouac’s characters including “Rollo Greb” in On the Road, and for “A.J.” in Burroughs’s Naked Lunch.

Octavo. Original red and brown wrappers. Lightly rubbed, an excellent copy.
