New York, NY: William Morrow & Company, 1999. First edition. Hardcover. "In 1997, America lost two of its leading literary lights just months apart: Allen Ginsberg and William S. Burroughs. Their passings were clearly the end of an age. In the wake of this generational shift, original Beat scholar John Tytell, along with noted photographer Mellon, offers a highly personal collection of intelligent essays and stunning photos that illuminate the phenomena that came to be known as the Beat Generation."(from front flap) A beautiful large-format production with thoughtful essays by John Tytell, author of the seminal 1976 study Naked Angels: Burroughs, Ginsberg, Kerouac and the Birth of the Beat Generation, and great intimate photos by his wife, Mellon. Hardcover in dj, both in very fine condition with only very slight wear to front & rear of dj & remainder mark on lower edge near spine. A superb & increasingly rare tribute by one of the earliest enshriners of the Beats into venerable academic skullership, enriched with wonderful images. Very Fine / Very Fine. [Item #1566]
