Flower Arranging: A Fascinating Hobby Volume 2.

Atlanta: Coca-Cola Co., 1941.

Item #SKB-977

Softbound. First edition. The second of three books on flower arranging by William Burroughs' mother sponsored by the Coca-Cola Company! Illustrated with amazingly kitchy color photos of flower arrangements, some posed with bottles of Coke. Interesting item because her middle name "Lee" was the pseudonym Burroughs used for his first book Junkie. She owned a gift shop called "Cobblestone Gardens," later the title of one of Burroughs' books. A revealing look at the upper middle class values that sent Burroughs looking for a different lifestyle. Unobtrusive thin dampstain to edge of some pages, very good.

Price: $25.00
