William S. Burroughs, Oliver Harris
New York: Viking Press, 1993.
First edition. Hardcover. Item #1604
Near fine in a near fine unclipped dust jacket; a trace of rubbing, edgewear, else fine. This copy with the ownership signature of John Sampas, the brother-in-law and estate executor of Jack Kerouac, on the front free endpaper, above the business card of a Viking editor taped to the page; the card has a brief greeting to Sampas from the editor. Numerous letters from Burroughs to Kerouac. A superior copy, with an unusual distinction.
