First edition (from a total edition of 1000 in various guises and limitations) of Burroughs' letters to friend and fellow Beat Allen Ginsberg. Gathers letter from the peak of the Beat movement with arguably Burroughs' most important correspondent. Despite its limitation, an surprisingly uncommon book. [Schottlaender G12b].
