Chicago Review, Volume 12, Number 2

Chicago, IL: The University of Chicago Press, Summer 1958. First Printing. Softcover. Charters, C30, pg. 83. This issue of the Chicago Review features a piece by Jack Kerouac, Meditation in the Woods, an excerpt from The Dharma Bums, not yet published in its entirety at the time of its inclusion here. It is mentioned that "He is at work on..." that novel in his entry in the Notes on Contibutors at the end of the issue. In the heat of notoriety surrounding the publication of On the Road the previous year, The Dharma Bums was its immediate follow-up novel. Also contributions by Samuel Beckett, Charles Olson, Gary Snyder, Philip Whalen & many others, brief reviews, vintage ads, etc. An important relic from Kerouac's initial burst of fame. Softcover in sewn binding in near-fine condition with browning & soiling to front, back covers & spine, a moderate crease along upper right corner through front cover, interior & back cover; interior otherwise fine, including loose subscription cards sheet.
