Item #SKB-16860

Hardbound, issued without a dust jacket. First edition, lettered issue. Cover photograph of the author by Robert Mapplethorpe. One of 26 specially bound lettered copies for "use of the author and publisher" signed by Smith, this being copy "B" (of a total hardbound edition of 126). Additionally, Patti Smith inscribed this copy at the bottom of the colophon page: "B--Double Bill--2 dreams of Wm Burroughs in Mex. movie dark sun glasses. bird peck. dilating eye of needle.." The book is dedicated to William Burroughs (along with Allen Lanier and Arthur Rimbaud). This copy "B" embellished with Smith's notation, really more of a poem, about Burroughs makes it one of the most desirable copies of this title imaginable. Slight toning to front cover, else about fine. Rare.
