TIME. William S. Burroughs, Brion Gysin.


Sussex, England: Urgency Press Ripoff Edition, 1972. First Edition Thus. Stapled sheets. TIME, by William S. Burroughs, with drawings by Brion Gysin, was originally published by Ted Berrigan's C Press in 1965. This is the Urgency Press Rip-Off Edition, one of 495 copies printed on a mimeograph duplicator for distribution at the Bickershaw Festival in the UK. A doubly underground version of an iconic example of WSB's efforts to subvert the pre-recorded universe, as exemplified by the sinister monopoly of "Time, Life & Fortune" by the established media! A very scarce WSB item, in very fine condition with only minor spotting & browning at edges, very minor curling-creasing at top corners of front sheet. Maynard & Miles A11(b), pgs. 52-53. 8" x 13" Very Fine. [Item #1050]

Price: $350.00
