First edition, first impression of the author’s first novel, and a key title in the development of Beat literature.

Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles to spine gilt on a blue ground. With the pictorial dust jacket. Spine gently rolled, foxed, and faded, light foxing to edges of text block; a very good copy in the jacket that is slightly toned and marked, with somewhat ragged edges.
