New York: Farrar Straus and Giroux, 1968. 1st Edition. Octavo, publisher's white cloth, spine stamped in multiple colors, top edge stained light blue, orange endpapers, original illustrated dust jacket.
Stated first printing of Wolfe's classic nonfiction novel about Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters' fabulous furry bus trip across America in the late 1960s. Dust jacket designed by Milton Glaser, with an author photo to rear panel by JFK's official campaign photographer Jacques Lowe. Some staining to edges of textblock and light soiling to cloth; unclipped dust jacket lightly soiled and with some edgewear. Very good. Item #5222
