New York: St. Martin's Press, 1992. Octavo. Black and maroon boards with a smudge on the bottom and top edges of the text block. Jacket has slight rubbing to the crown and heel of the spine. 769 pages. First edition, warmly inscribed by both the author (at length) and Allen Ginsberg on the title page to John Allen Cassady, the son of Neil and Carolyn Cassady. Near fine.
Promotional flyer from 1992 for an event featuring Ginsberg and the author laid in. An important, singular beat relic inscribed by Allen Ginsberg to his namesake in the Cassady clan.
"Poetry and unconventional politics — passions for which Allen Ginsberg would become widely known — passed from parents to son like steely faiths, already forged, awaiting proper test."
