On the Road, Jack Kerouac
First edition, third printing of Kerouac's best known novel and a defining work of the postwar Beat and counterculture generations.
New York: The Viking Press, 1957. A very good copy in a good, unclipped dust jacket. Binding is tight, sturdy and square, minimal wear to boards. Bookplate to front pastedown, along with a small removed sticker and pen note, else internally clean and bright. Jacket shows some general shelfwear and rubbing, a few closed tears and some chipping around the spine tips, protected in archival mylar. A presentable copy.
