Doctor Sax And The Great World Snake

New York, NY: Gallery Six, 2003. Sala, Richard. Pre-publication. Spiral Bound Wraps. "Jack Kerouac gives free reign to the powers of his soaring imagination in this previously-unpublished screenplay adaptation of his mystical, vision-novel Doctor Sax. Basing the haunting tale in true reflections of his 1930's childhood growing up in the industrial milltown of Lowell, Massachusetts, Kerouac spins out a dark cosmology as "concentrations of evil" gather- vampires, gnomes, spiders, werewolves of the soul, "leerers at the glad heart of others" -- aspiring to destroy mankind. Doctor Sax -- alchemist of the night and friend of the children -- is the caped crusader who stands against the darkness."(back cover of published edition) this is the pre-publication of the screenplay by Jack Kerouac based on his novel, issued to sellers & reviewers, in the form of a large-format spiral-bound script, with many illustrations by Richard Sala including a color cover sheet, with clear plastic front & rear protective covers. The final published edition is a smaller production with the illustrated screenplay & a 2-CD audio version, not included in this pre-publication item. A most rare collectible, in very fine condition with only a crease at the lower left corner of clear plastic rear protective cover. Very Fine. [Item #1590]
