New Yorkand London: Grove Press / Evergreen Books, 1959. First Edition, a trade softcover original (no hardcover equivalent issued), issued in conjunction with the release of the 1959 film. With a stunning grouping of signatures, all in the same ink and very likely executed on the same day: the film's director Robert Frank, and the three beat generation heavies who appear as themselves in the film: Allen Ginsberg, Peter Orlovsky, and Gregory Corso.
A hermetically sealed group of autographs, linking the filmmaker and the entirety of the film's literary cast with its paper counterpart.
Perfect bound wrappers, Very Good plus with light rubbing, else no notable wear. In a custom quarter leather clamshell box and folding chemise.
