Iconic - a masterpiece of american writing and the beat generation bible. A truly beautiful copy with a stunning example of the rare dustjacket.

The jacket was printed in black on a light paper stock. As a result it is liable to unsightly creasing that shows the white background, making copies such as the present example remarkably uncommon.

Recently this iconic text was celebrated by Kim Jones for the Dior A/W 2022 men’s show in London, bringing a new generation to this essential book.

First edition, first impression, first state dust-jacket. A beautiful copy of the beat generation bible.
