The Hasheesh Eater, Fritz Hugh Ludlow

Rare first edition, first printing of the first full-length American example of drug literature, in which Ludlow describes his altered states of consciousness and philosophical flights of fancy while he was using a cannabis extract. In the United States, the book created popular interest in hashish, leading to hashish candy and private hashish clubs.

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1857. Publisher's brown embossed boards, spine lettered and decorated in gilt; 371 pages. Binding sound with a slight lean. Front board beginning to split at the spine heel, spine cloth lifting with a bit of loss, some light general shelfwear and rubbing to boards. Internally, pastedown and endpapers show discoloration with erased writing to the front endpaper, dampstain and foxing to title page, else clean. A presentable copy, protected in a removable archival jacket.
