First edition, second printing with 18 francs printed to back panel, and with an original painting in black ink by Gysin to the front endpapers. Gysin (1916-1986) was Burroughs’s lifelong friend and collaborator. A pioneer of the cut-up technique which was utilized by Burroughs, he greatly influenced some of the twentieth century’s most important artists, from the Beat Generation to Bowie.

Octavo. Original wrappers printed in green and black. Spine rolled, wrappers a little faded, spine ends slightly worn. An excellent copy.
