INSCRIBED by Burroughs on the title page: "For Fred Hunter / with best wishes / William Burroughs." Hunter's ownership signature penned to front free endpaper. (Item ID: 22136)

First edition of Burroughs' Beat masterpiece, inscribed to Fred Hunter, who helped found the spoken word label Stream Records in the late sixties and first met Burroughs in 1963 at one of Jonathan Williams's parties in north London (where perhaps this copy was signed to him). 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, featuring am iconic jacket design by Burroughs. One of 5000 copies. A highspot of 20th century American literature. [Kearney 5.76.1]. [Maynard & Miles A2.a].
