Second printing ('18 Francs' to rear as described in Maynard & Miles) of the original edition of Burroughs' Beat masterpiece. A landmark novel that led to several important court decisions on indecency and censorship. Certainly Burroughs' best-known work (it was successfully adapted by David Cronenberg into a fine film of the same name), it is also arguably Burroughs' best and most enduring as well. The Traveler's Companion Series No. 76. [Kearney 5.76.3]. [Maynard & Miles A2.a].
