Huncke's Journal

New York, NY: The Poets Press, 1965. Matson, Erin. First edition. Stapled Wrappers. The first edition of the first published work of Herbert Huncke (1915-1996), who introduced William S. Burroughs, Allen Ginsberg & Jack Kerouac to the NYC underworld & helped launch the Beat Generation. Published by Beat poet Diane Di Prima's press, this is among the very rarest Huncke collectibles. This is a particularly beautiful copy, in very fine condition with only creases & chips at spine edge, & staples beginning to rust. Signed by Herbert Huncke on the title page, in a clear, smooth script that indicates it is early, probably at or near the time of publication, since his later signatures are rather shaky & unsteady. This item will be the prize of any serious collector of this legendary writer. Very Fine. [Item #1531]

Price: $500.00
