San Francisco: City Lights, (1956). First Edition. 12mo. Original single-stapled wraps with hand-pasted wrap-around band label (present only in this printing and the second). Very good with moderate toning to label, as usual. Crease across top corner of front wrap. Several small stains and a scuff to rear label. Tiny touch of foxing at fore-edge. Else clean and sound throughout. (Item ID: 15765)

The first printing, an impression of 1000 copies, of the original edition of Ginsberg's landmark poem, number four in the Pocket Poets Series. Though publisher Ferlinghetti made efforts to censor the work prior to publication (replacing the more offensive words with ellipses) Howl still managed to run afoul with US Customs officials, who seized more than 500 copies of the second printing for obscenity, leading to one of the most important censorship trials of the 20th century. [Morgan A3.a1.1]. [Cook p. 21].
