Map From Hell. William S. Burroughs Jr.

Map From Hell

Madison, WS: The Red Ozier Press, 1978. First Printing. Broadside. A beautifully produced broadside on fine handmade paper, featuring a piece of prose-poetry by the ill-fated son of William S. Burroughs & Joan Vollmer Burroughs. The text seems to have the qualities of a cut-up as pioneered by the author's father. With an illustration by Mark Mulhern. A most tragic figure in the WSB legend, "cursed from birth" as he put it himself, WSB Jr. (actually William S. Burroughs III to be exact) died less than three years after this broadside was published at the age of thirty-three. A very rare artifact in very fine condition, with only mild horizontal creases along lower area, rough edges & tumbled texture with faint horizontal creases as issued, old price (in British pounds) & seller's reference in light pencil at top right corner. Mounted on stiff board, in protective shrink wrap. From the collection of James Perrizo. 7" X 17-7/8".

Item is currently mounted on stiff board, in protective shrink wrap, will be shipped rolled in a tube.
Very Fine. [Item #1799]

Price: $60.00
