Naked Lunch, William S. Burroughs
First edition, first printing of Burroughs' masterpiece and a cornerstone of beat literature. First issue with the original price of 1,500 Francs to rear wrap, later issues have a stamp or sticker indicating a new price.
Paris: The Olympia Press, 1959. Publisher's original stiff olive-green wrappers, white ground dust jacket reproducing a calligraphic drawing by Burroughs; pp. [1-6], 7-225, [226-232]. A near fine copy in a near fine, unclipped dust jacket. Minimal edgewear to wraps with a touch of sunning to spine and extremities, internally clean. Jacket shows near negligible wear, with a tiny closed tear to back panel, spine and rear panel fold lightly offset. A very presentable copy.
