Short harmless light pen mark on the bottom edge. A very nice copy. There are three Heinemann issues - The first two were in black boards - the first priced at 16s the second priced at 18s. Thirdly in the late 60s the last copies were bound up in purple boards with a decimal price sticker. The first issue is very uncommon. The author's controversial tour-de-force. Excerpts from the first two chapters of the novel were dramatized and broadcast on BBC TV's program 'Tonight', in 1962 (now lost, believed wiped). A 1965 film by Andy Warhol entitled 'Vinyl' was an adaptation of the Burgess' novel and famously, very successfully filmed in 1971 by Stanley Kubrick - Withdrawn in Britain for fear of causing copycat violence.

        ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST (signed + frog stamp)

      VIKING Press, New York 1962 - Viking (1962) 1974. NY. 311 pages. 8vo. The 1st/1st of this title originally published by Viking hit the presses in 1962. This copy was printed in 1974 and copyright page states Twenty-second printing June 1974. DJ price of $6.00 intact on flap. Also states Viking Compass Edition Issued in 1964 by the Viking Press. This copy is BOLDLY SIGNED by KEN KESEY in a gold paint pen on front-free endpaper. For --, Ken Kesey. Ken Kesey also stamped a large multi-colored frog stamp to same endpaper. Book is about fine in clean, bright green cloth with 4 sharp corners. Yellow topstain. The only thing holding this book back from being flawless is a minor flaw: 3 bottom page edges having a tiny chip or folded-up chip (tiny). This flaw hardly detracts from this excellent copy. Most minor shelf-wear to edges. Flaws are overstated. This book is in excellent, crisp condition. DJ is in the famous design as the 1st printing with cover design/art by Paul Bacon. DJ is bright and colorful. Black edges are nearly impossible to keep free of flaws and this copy is no different. Some of the black color has rubbed off at corners and along contours. As a result of the rubbing on DJ, we have graded it VG++ . Of the few signed Viking copies available, this is a beautiful book and a fine alternative to the signed 1st printing which will set you back a cool $ 7K.
