Bruce, Lenny
Stamp Help Out! and Other Short Stories
[Self-published], New York, 1962. First edition, first issue with four-letter words legible. [52] pp. Stapled wraps. Fears of this San Francisco concert promo booklet harming him in his obscenity trial led comedian Lenny Bruce to have copies destroyed, most that weren't had certain four-letter struck out to render them innocuous. Very Good with rubbing and a few light dampstains to wraps, lightly toned, former owner's name written on first page. A rare survival of the legendary free speech figure's comedy, all-too-briefly unencumbered by censorship. [Attributes: First Edition]
Bookseller: Burnside Rare Books, ABAA [Portland, OR, U.S.A.]
