Notes

First edition, first printing, inscribed, of the author's most enduring and influential work, recording the LSD-fuelled adventures of Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters, aboard the colourfully painted bus named "Further", driven by Neal Cassady. This copy is inscribed by Wolfe on the front free endpaper, "For Kup! The fastest mind in the West and now points east, north and south Best wishes Tom Wolfe". The recipient was the Chicago columnist Irving Kupcinet (1912-2003), popularly known by the nickname Kup. His "Kup's Column" was a fixture in the Chicago Sun-Times for six decades.
