On the Road
New York: The Viking Press, 1957. First edition. Fine/Fine. A Fine copy of the book in like dust jacket. Very, very slight cocking at the top of the spine, otherwise unread and untouched, with all white lettering sharp and unrubbed. In a Fine dust jacket that has never been messed around with in any way, with only a few very faint spots of rubbing to the black jacket. A decidedly superior copy, quite rare in this condition. Housed in a custom clamshell case. "It changed my life like it changed everyone else's," Bob Dylan said of "On The Road." Jack Kerouac's classic Roman A Clef, published in 1957, was the defining work of the beat generation. It follows the travels of Sal Paradise, a stand in for Kerouac himself, and is based on a series of journeys Kerouac took from 1947 to 1950. The work was typed up on a continuous "scroll" of sheets that Kerouac had taped together. "On The Road" appears on both Modern Library's list of the 100 best novels of the century and on Time Magazine list of the 100 best English language novels from 1923-2005. "[I]ts publication is a historic occasion… the most beautifully executed, the clearest and the most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as 'beat,' and whose principal avatar he is." (Contemporary New York Times review). Fine in Fine dust jacket.
