Roosevelt After Inauguration

Burroughs, William S.

[New York]

[Fuck You Press]



[14] leaves including wrappers, mimeographed typescript on one side only, on pink (red), white & blue gatherings. 5½x4¼", saddle-stitched pink self-wrappers decorated by Allen Ginsberg. One of 500 copies printed by Ed Sanders. First Separate Edition.

A remarkable rare piece of the counterculture's literary history. The introductory leaf contains a portion of the letter from Burroughs to Ginsberg in which he sent the draft, plus the following statement "This routine was bricked out of the City Lights Volume by paranoid printers in England. It was first stomped into print in Floating Bear #9." Indeed, the piece was censored from the City Lights' Yage Letters by the Villiers Press in London. Also in the printing statement on the final page is "printed, published, & zapped at a secret location in the lower east side, new york city, Jan 1964. TOTAL ASSAULT ON THE CULTURE!" Maynard & Miles A9a.

Lot Amendments

A bit of sunning at spine, chip to bottom corner of rear wrapper; near fine.
