First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the half-title “To fill up Alan’s empty shelves. Love from Jimmy”. 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 yellow wrappers printed in brown, contents yellow. Lightly rubbed, spine tanned, marks to head of spine and top corner of cover. A very good copy.
