  • Quantity available: 1
San Francisco: City Lights Pocket Bookshop, 1956. Original wraps. Near Fine. A remarkable Association copy of the 1956 1st City Lights edition (preceded only by an impossibly scarce {purportedly 25 copies} 1955 mimeographed edition of only the poem "Howl"). This copy not only conforms to all the original issue points required of the inaugural Pocket Poet edition but is in beautiful, near-pristine condition. Furthermore, THIS COPY IS SIGNED BY 5 OF THE KEY FIGURES IN THE BOOK'S GENESIS: 1) ALLEN GINSBERG (on the title page); 2) LAWRENCE FERLINGHETTI (on the copyright page); 3) LUCIEN CARR (on the dedication page); 4) WILLIAM BURROUGHS (also on the dedication page); and 5) CARL SOLOMON (on the first blank endpaper). In other words, this copy is signed by the book's author, its publisher and by 3 of its 5 dedicatees (only Jack Kerouac's and Neal Cassady's signatures are missing from this copy). Notably, of the 5 signatures, Lucien Carr's appears to be the most elusive of all on co ... Read more

Howl and Other Poems

Ginsberg, Allen (Allen Young)

  • Edition: First Edition
  • Book condition: Good/very Good
  • Quantity available: 1
City Lights Books, The Pocket Poets Series, 1956. This is the true first printing of the classic book of poetry signed by Mr. Ginsberg (with the wrap around label attached to the cover) and with the dedication to Lucian Carr. Inscribed to a relative, the book comes with its own clamshell case. Under the title he has written: "For Naomi Ginsberg Secretly" and it is inscribed as follows: "From her cousin Allen...For beautiful Irene, who got more beautiful decade after decade till August 22, 1965 Sunday. Portland, Oregon." This copy is a little beat (pardon the pun) with some staining and foxing on the cover. Still, a very desirable item. Scan available upon request.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Original Wraps. Good/very Good.

  • Quantity available: 1
San Francisco: City Lights, 1956. First Edition. Very Good +. First issue, with Lucien Carr noted in the dedication, 2-page introduction by William Carlos Williams, and no mention of printing on the copyright page. A Very Good+ to Near Fine copy of this important work of Beat literature. Original black paper wrappers with white card title band. A few stray marks to the front panel, slight toning at the spine, internal contents generally in excellent condition. Signed and dated by the author in the year of publication. Allen's Ginsberg's hugely influential poem, one of the great works of Beat Generation literature. Ginsberg had begun work on "Howl" years before its publication in 1956, partly at the urging of his therapist. The writer Kenneth Rexroth, one of Ginsberg's close friends, reviewed early drafts of the work, and thought it was too forced and constrained, and so Ginsberg rewrote the poem, removing many of the linguistic and syntactical limits he had originally labored ...
