Notes

First edition, first printing, of Kerouac's "242 Choruses", written between 1954 and 1957, in the correct black and white jacket (the bibliographer Charters incorrectly calls for a jacket "printed in red, green and black", these being the colours of the wrappers issue, and later dust jackets), hard to find in collectable condition.

Description

Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles to spine in gilt. With the pictorial dust jacket.

Condition

Spine ends gently bumped, abrasion to front pastedown from a bookplate sometime removed. A near-fine copy in an excellent jacket, minor loss to tips and small chip at bottom edge of front panel, a few discreet edge-splits, but much better than usually encountered.
