Descrizione: New York: Viking Press, 1957, 1957. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front cover in white, top edge red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a custom blue morocco-backed black cloth folding-case. Minor wear at extremities; very good in the jacket with slight creasing to extremities and small chip to head of rear panel. First edition, first printing. A highly important presentation copy, inscribed by the author to John Montgomery with a drawing by Kerouac of the ghost of the Susquehanna, relating to both On the Road and The Dharma Bums. Montgomery was a Berkeley librarian who, according to Gerald Nocosial, "fascinated Jack with his scholarly non sequiturs." In October 1955, the poet Gary Snyder and Montgomery fitted Kerouac up with hiking gear and the three of them hiked up the 12,000-foot ridge of Matterhorn Mountain in Yosemite. This episode was to be transformed by Kerouac in to a key event in his celebrated novel, The Dharma Bums. In the novel, Montgomery is depicted as Henry Morley and Snyder, Japhy Ryder. Kerouac described the three men's expedition as "all completely serious, all completely hallucinated, all completely happy". Kerouac's evocative drawing depicts the Ghost of the Susquehanna, described in chapter 14 of part one of On the Road. "It was the night of the Ghost of the Susquehanna. The Ghost was a shrivelled little old man with a paper satchel who claimed he was headed for 'Canady.' He walked very fast, commanding me to follow, and said there was a bridge up ahead we could cross. as far as I could see he was just a semi-respectable walking hobo of some kind who had covered the entire Eastern Wilderness on foot. We were bums together. We walked seven miles along the mournful Susquehanna. It is a terrifying river. It has bushy cliffs on both sides that lean like hairy ghosts over the unknown waters. Inky night covers all. I thought all the wilderness of America was in the West till the Ghost of the Susquehanna showed me different." While the Ghost undoubtedly has its origins in a hobo Kerouac encountered in western Pennsylvania, the vision is also inspired by a recurring nightmare, which Kerouac related to Allen Ginsburg and others in the late 1940s. He dreamed repeatedly of being pursued by a "Hooded Wayfarer without a Name." Kerouac came to believe that the hooded figure was merely his own self wearing a shroud. The first draft of On the Road to contain a scene approximating his dreams of the shrouded stranger was produced in 1951. Provenance: John McVey Montgomery (1919–1992); sold by him c.1988 via a Californian book dealer to Ken Lopez and Tom Congalton; subsequently in the noted Kerouac collection of Airick Kredell (1950–2004); sold in 2004 by Skyline Books to a private collector in London.

Descrizione: New York: The Viking Press, 1957, 1957. Octavo. Original black boards, titles to spine and front board in white. With the dust jacket. Housed in a quarter red morocco box. Spine a little rolled but an excellent copy in the slightly creased and lightly frayed dust jacket. First edition, first printing, presentation copy to Pieter W. Fosburgh and his wife Liza, inscribed by the author in red crayon, "To Peter [sic] and Liza Fosburgh, Writing in red crayon in memory of the Red House, Jack Kérouac [sic] (Idiot) (St. Jack of the Germs)" [the last five words in pencil]. This is a fascinating and thoroughly characterful presentation. The remembered "Red House" is likely to be to the large redbrick St Louis elementary School in the Centralville section of Lowell, Massachusetts, which Kerouac attended from April 1929 through to the fourth grade. Pieter Whitney Fosburgh (1915–1978), author of the proto-conservationist book, The Natural Thing: the Land and its Citizens (New York: Macmillan, 1959), was editor of New York State's Department of Conservation magazine. As his middle name indicates he was descended through his mother from the socially prominent Whitney family of Massachusetts, and seems likely to have also attended the "Red House" elementary. His brothers James and Hugh were also naturalists, art critics, writers, and artists, and his wife Liza wrote children's books. Codice articolo 124324

Descrizione: The Viking Press, New York, 1957. Hardcover. First Edition. Third Printing in a Third Printing dustwrapper BUT INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front endpaper: "To Don---/from/Jack Kerouac/I'm really happy/that you came to the/party Henri threw for me!" Henri was one of Kerouac's oldest friends, Henri Cru, the character Remi Boncoeur in ON THE ROAD. (Some years ago we sold a copy of this book inscribed to Henri as "my best friend" by Kerouac.). Except for one book signing event in Denver for his first book, THE TOWN AND THE CITY, Kerouac did not do promotional signings for any of his books. When ON THE ROAD was published, Kerouac was so overwhelmed by the publicity that he went into self-imposed exile with his mother. Consequently, inscribed copies of any printing of this, his most important book, are rare. The heavyweight champ of Beat Literature finally made into a film after years of speculation. While Kerouac was alive he wanted to play Sal Paradise and costar with Marlon Brando, but Brando decided against the project. Both the book and the dustwrapper are bright and fresh, with a few very short closed tears to the top of the dustwrapper. Fine in a Near Fine dustwrapper. Codice articolo 014877

Descrizione: Denver, CO, 1947. Condizione: Near Fine. Original Autograph Letter Signed. 3 pages handwritten in pencil on 1 sheet measuring 11.5 x 8 inches. In excellent condition overall, the letter has a vertical center fold line and two horizontal fold lines all intact and has some mathematical notations on the back blank. Strong and legible signature "Jacky xxx" with handwritten name and address beneath. An intimate and tender letter from the young Kerouac to his mother, from the Denver stop of the road trip that would become the basis for his most famous literary work.Ten years before On the Road made Jack Kerouac an overnight sensation, he departed on a cross-country trip that immersed him in the wide-ranging romance of the American west. Kerouac's letter to his mother Gabrielle, one of the strongest influences on his life, reveals his creative process with all the earnestness of a 25 year old seeking to learn whatever he could about the world: "Boy, it's been a lot of fun around here. When I get [a] typewriter tomorrow?I'll write and tell you about it. I had about ten girlfriends; went up to the mountains; saw an opera; ate swell food, venison steak, at Hal's house; the weather is nice -- and I'm staying in a swanky apartment with showers and food and everything." At moments like this, Kerouac's letter thrums with the first notes of On the Road, often described as a novel "based on wild, improvised road trips across the U.S." in which young men "hit the road: crisscrossing the country in search of the new American dream - or just for kicks, music, and women" (Reid). The novelty of new food and hot showers, the fun of a new place, and the excitement of young women shape On the Road and are clearly drawn from Kerouac's own experiences. Yet Kerouac's letter also undermines this notion that the roadtrip was aimless. As he charts his path west, he plans out money and transportation, telling his mother about the need for efficiency if he's going to meet his goals. "I want to get on to San Francisco and make some money. I haven't a cent left and I'll need $25 to take a bus to California from here, because hitch-hiking is impossible across the desert and the mountains. And Henri Cru will be expecting me by Monday. The easiest way for you to send me the $25.00 is to go to a Western Union office in Brooklyn ?and wire me the money." Within the letter, he sets longterm goals about his writing, outlining a plan to return home with money and the security to complete his book: "I want to get going so I can make a lot of money sailing in the Pacific and come home in the Fall and finish my book." Denver, a city to which Kerouac would return on all future road trips, proved to be critical for the young writer, who "was a fastidious, old-fashioned craftsman. For every day he spent 'on the road' during his lifetime, gathering material, he toiled for a month in solitude--sketching, polishing, and typing his novels" (Brinkley). In an interview later in his life, Henri Cru, mentioned in this letter, confirmed that in On the Road "most everything that Jack wrote was generally true" when it came to his travels (Moore). As a literary craftsman, he craves a typewriter and a quiet place to commit his memories to paper. But he is also a young man far from home, and the image of himself working also causes homesickness. "Gee, and you can't realize how much I miss you, and the house, and writing in my room. But I'll be back in a few months and we'll save some money. I hope Nin or Bea are visiting you -- if so, give them my love. Write me a letter right away." This letter reveals that like the jazz musicians he so admired, Kerouac carefully develops a narrative that only appears improvised; in actuality, it was a testament to his ability to interweave multiple regional experiences into one text, exposing the diversity of America. It also shows that for Kerouac, the road was as important as his own home. Near Fine. Codice articolo 2165

Descrizione: New York: The Viking Press, 1957, 1957. Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine and front cover in white, top edge red. With the dust jacket. Housed in a black quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery.

A superb copy. First edition, first printing, rare in such nice condition, with the black background of the jacket free from the rubbing to which it is so liable. The jacket, printed in black onto light paper stock, is usually encountered with unsightly creasing and rubbing, revealing the white paper beneath. This classic text of Beat literature was Kerouac's second book, propelling him from an obscure author to "King of the Beats" overnight. This copy is from the library of Virginia bibliophile and historian Christopher Clark Geest, with his bookplate to the front pastedown. Codice articolo 125701

Descrizione: The Viking Press, New York, 1957. First edition of Kerouac's classic novel. Octavo, original black cloth. Fine in an excellent dust jacket with light rubbing and wear. Jacket design by Bill English. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. The raucous, exuberant, often wildly funny account of a journey through America and Mexico, Jack Kerouac's On the Road instantly defined a generation on its publication in 1957: it was, in the words of a New York Times reviewer, "the clearest and most important utterance yet made by the generation Kerouac himself named years ago as 'beat.'" Written in the mode of ecstatic improvisation that Allen Ginsberg described as "spontaneous bop prosody," Kerouac's novel remains electrifying in its thirst for experience and its defiant rebuke of American conformity. In his portrayal of the fervent relationship between the writer Sal Paradise and his outrageous, exasperating, and inimitable friend Dean Moriarty, Kerouac created one of the great friendships in American literature; and his rendering of the cities and highways and wildernesses that his characters restlessly explore are a hallucinatory travelogue of a nation he both mourns and celebrates. "On the Road has become a classic of the Beat Movement with its stream-of-consciousness depiction of the rejection of mainstream American values set in a physical and metaphysical journey across America" (Book in America, 136). It is the basis for the 2012 film featuring Garrett Hedlund, Sam Riley, Kristen Stewart, Alice Braga, Amy Adams, Tom Sturridge, Danny Morgan, Elisabeth Moss, Kirsten Dunst, and Viggo Mortensen. The executive producers were Francis Ford Coppola, Patrick Batteux, Jerry Leider, and Tessa Ross. Codice articolo 64040

Descrizione: Viking, NY, 1957. Octavo. (iv) 310pp. First edition. Author's second book, which stands quite firmly as the quintessential work of beat literature. The subject of Kerouac's rhapsodic novel is well-known, as are the stories surrounding its composition, and the mixed bag of critical response to its publication. What is less often cited is Kerouac's intended audience, which Ann Charters reveals in her bibliography: in a later interview, he admits that the book was written for his second wife "to tell her what I'd been through. It's directed toward a woman . it's sexy because it's addressed to a woman." Fine and bright in black cloth stamped in white, and with unrestored dust wrapper which shows faint rubbing to spine, a few tiny nicks to head of spine, and a couple of small closed tears at extremities.

Descrizione: Viking, 1957. Hardcover. Condizione: Near Fine. Condizione sovraccoperta: Very Good. 1st Edition. Jack Kerouac (1957) ‘On the Road’. From the estate of Lord Birdwood, a US first edition, first printing published by Viking. First state dust jacket priced USD 3.95, and with the blue and red edge stripes as called for. Also, Jack Kerouac’s signature on a cheque written for Schlossmann’s in New York for the amount of USD 247.64 dated 19 August 1958. Whatever Kerouac paid for with this cheque, the funds certainly stemmed from the ‘On The Road’ royalties. We are very proud to be able to offer this book together with this cheque as this makes it one of very few copies on the market with an authentic laid in signature. Condition: The book is in near fine condition in a very good, unrestored dust jacket. The book has no lean; no foxing to the pages; no tears; no major rubbing. The white lettering on the spine is vibrant and not rubbed out as often seen. The top stain is burgundy-red. The iconic and fragile black boards usually unforgivingly show every single rub and dusting. As can be seen in the pictures, the black boards are very clean. There is a slight push to the upper front corner. On the front free end paper (ffep) there is the previous owner’s signature: ‘Birdwood’ (see below). The dust jacket is unrestored and in very good condition with slight edge wear. We see the typical fraying and minor chipping to the folds and a couple of close tears. However, there is no minor loss, it is NOT price clipped, and the reverse shows the jacket clean and white (very unusual) without any foxing or discolouration. The American dust jackets from the 50s and early 60s are very fragile and copies with perfect wrappers are exceptionally scarce. At best they are described as “near fine which has benefited from restoration by a paper conservationist”. This dust jacket was not touched by any restorer and is nevertheless well preserved. Lord Mark William Ogilvie Birdwood, 3rd Baron Birdwood was a member of the House of Lords, and expert on defence. Whilst usually previous owner’s signatures/ marks are considered a flaw, this is not the case here as the previous owner is clearly not an ordinary person, and if the signature does not add any significant value it should not decrease it either. Birdwood, whilst an undergraduate, together with five fellow Cambridge students, “drove from London to Nepal in a Land Rover, an expedition that took them across Europe and through Turkey, Persia and Afghanistan.” It does not come as a surprise why Birdwood owned a first edition copy of ‘On the Road’, cherished it, and kept in such a remarkable condition!.
