Don Quixote

ISBN: 05860858
London, England: Paladin Grafton Books, 1986. First UK Edition. Softcover. The first British edition of the hallucinatory novel by Kathy Acker, the late William S.

Both editions also have the same bold front cover illustration by Catherine Denvir. "If Miller and Burroughs didn't curl your hair, Acker's stuff shouldn't be too strong for you."(The Advocate, quoted on back cover) A rarity from the author's lifetime in fine condition, with only very mild rubbing to front, back covers & spine, very slight bumping, chipping to edges & corners of same, light browning to edges, tiny spottings at upper side edge. Interior very fine except for browning of edges of pages, inevitable from age & paper quality. Fine. [Item #1635]
