Verlag Peter Engstler, 1997. First German Edition. Softcover. This is the first German edition of William S. Burroughs' later important work, Tornado Alley, first published in 1989 by Charles Plymell's Cherry Valley Editions. The German translation of WSB's text is by Udo Breger. The illustrations on front & rear covers, & preceding each short piece (or "routine"), are not those of S. Clay Wilson, as were the interior illustrations of the U.S. edition, but are completely different & from an unknown, presumably German illustrator. With a facsimile signature of the author. Text in German. This most unique version of the WSB classic (which includes the well-known "Thanksgiving Prayer" among other gems) is from the collection of its original publisher, Charles Plymell, & his wife/co-publisher Pamela Beach Plymell. A scarce WSB collectible with primary provenance, in very fine condition with only mild rubbing to front, back covers & spine, vertical creases along front & back at spine, very tiny bumps at corners. Very Fine. [Item #1790]
