Letter from a Master Addict to Dangerous Drugs
(N.-pl.): The British Journal of Addiction, [1957]. First Edition. Trade Paperback Trade Paperback. Fine. Pp. 119-131 (plus a final blank page). Stapled sheets. A letterpress off-print from the British Journal of Addiction, vol. 53, no. 2. Burrough's second separate publication, one of the most widely cited first-hand accounts of drug use. In this letter, written in response to a request from a physician, Burroughs describes the effects of opiates of all sorts, cocaine, marijuana, benzedrene, peyote, Yage, nutmeg, and scopolomine. He also describes various methods used by addicts to break the opiate habit. One of the scarcest and most desireable Burroughs items, often reported to have had a print run of 50 copies, although your humble cataloguer could find no factual basis for this claim. First edition. Stapled very slightly rusted, else fine.
