London: Andre Deutsch, 1958. First UK edition, first printing. Original pink cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in the Len Deighton illustrated dustwrapper. A better than very good, the binding square and firm, the cloth bright. The contents with some spotting to the prelims and closed text block edge are otherwise clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper which is toned to the white on the spine and a little spotted to the edges of the rear panel. Not price-clipped (15s net to the front flap). An attractive example. A defining work of the Beat generation. A roman à clef, featuring other key figures of the Beat movement including William Burroughs (Old Bull Lee), Allen Ginsberg (Carlo Marx), Neal Cassady (Dean Moriarty) and Kerouac himself (as the narrator Sal Paradise). Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: LUCIUS BOOKS (ABA, ILAB, PBFA) [York, United Kingdom]
