Roosevelt After Inauguration. William S. Burroughs.

Roosevelt After Inauguration

New York: Fuck You Press, 1964. First edition. 24mo, [12] pp, mimeographed from typescript and drawing. Covers illustrated with impeccable provocation and grace by Allen Ginsberg.

The first separate edition of this section of the Yage Letters, which the "paranoid printers" of the City Lights edition in England refused to print. The missing section was first published in the 9th issue of Diane Di Prima and Leroi Jones' Floating Bear, which brought the censors down on them (though they beat the charges). None of this was enough to frighten off Ed Sanders, who had it "printed, published and zapped at a secret location in the lower east side."

Maynard & Miles A9.

A fine example. Item #26640

Price: $750.00
