Huncke's Journal
New York, NY: The Poets Press, 1965. First edition. Stapled Wrappers. Very Fine. Matson, Erin. The first edition of the first published work of Herbert Huncke, who introduced William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg & Jack Kerouac to the NYC underworld & helped launch the Beat Generation. Published by Beat poet Diane Di Prima's press, this is among the very rarest Huncke collectibles. This is a particularly beautiful copy, in very fine condition with only creases & chips at spine edge, & staples beginning to rust. Signed by Herbert Huncke on the title page, in a clear, smooth script that indicates it is early, probably at or near the time of publication, since his later signatures are rather shaky & unsteady. A most wonderful item, the prize of any serious collector of this legendary writer. Signed by Herbert Huncke
