First edition, first printing, inscribed copy. From an edition of 5,100 copies, this copy is inscribed by Ginsberg on the title page, "2/17/94, Allen Ginsberg, for Audrey Gaston", and with a large ink drawing across the title page spread featuring his favoured Blakean "Ah, Sunflower" growing under an "Ah" sun and other celestial shapes.
Ginsberg's collection of photographs of his close friends includes portraits of Kerouac, Cassady, Burroughs, Orlovsky, Snyder, Corso, and Leary, with some of such luminaries as Robert Frank, Basil Bunting, Lou Reed, and Ken Kesey, all with revealing descriptive annotations in facsimile.
