Item Description: Random House, New York, 1971. First edition of the author's second book. Octavo, original half cloth. Signed in full by Hunter S. Thompson and the illustrator, Ralph Steadman. Fine in a near fine price-clipped dust jacket that shows only light wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. A very sharp copy. The novel Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is based on two trips to Las Vegas, Nevada, that Hunter S. Thompson took with attorney and Chicano activist Oscar Zeta Acosta in March and April 1971. Thompson wrote that he concluded their March trip by spending some 36 hours alone in a hotel room "feverishly writing in my notebook" about his experiences. The genesis of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas: A Savage Journey to the Heart of the American Dream is in that notebook. The book "cemented Mr. Thompson's place as a singular presence in American journalism or, as he once called himself, 'a connoisseur of edge work'" (New York Times). Adapted into the 1998 film starring Johnny Depp and Benicio Del Torro. Bookseller Inventory # 884

Item Description: Random House, New York, 1972. Hard Back. Book Condition: As New. Dust Jacket Condition: As New. Steadman, Ralph - Drawings (illustrator). First Edition Stated. 206 Pages. First Edition stated below number line 97532468 There is a hint of fading at the top and bottom of the gray boards. Otherwise this book is in Brand New condition. Dust jacket has been protected with Gaylord vlnyl covering and 5.95 flap price is unclipped. Interior text pages and illustrations are flawless. Heralded as the best book on the dope decade, Hunter Thompson's documented drug orgy through Las Vegas would no doubt leave Nancy Reagan blushing. Under the pseudonym of Raoul Duke, Thompson travels with his Samoan attorney, Dr. Gonzo, in a souped-up convertible dubbed the Great Red Shark. In the trunk, they hide two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half-full of cocaine and a whole galaxy of multicolored uppers, downers, and screamers. A quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of Budweiser and a pint of raw ether which they manage to consume during their short tour. On assignment from a sports magazine to cover the fabulous Mint 400--a free-for-all biker's race in the heart of the Nevada desert--the drug-a-delic duo stumbles through Vegas in hallucinatory hopes of finding the American dream. Two truck-stop waitresses tell them it's nearby, but can't remember if it's on the right or the left. They of course never get the story, but they do commit the only sins in Vegas: burning the locals, abusing the tourists, terrifying the help. For Thompson to remember and pen his experiences with such clarity and wit is nothing short of a miracle; an impressive feat no matter how one feels about the subject matter. This book is a pop-culture classic, an icon of an era past and a nugget of pure comedic genius. First appeared in Rolling Stone magazine, issue 95, November 11, 1971 and 96, November 25, 1971. Illustrations appeared in same issues Size: 5 3/4" x 8 1/2". Bookseller Inventory # 16201

Item Description: New York, NY: Random House, 1971., 1971. First Edition. Octavo. Bound in publisher's quarter black cloth over grey paper boards, blind embossed figure smoking a cigarette to front board, titles in silver to spine. Pictorial dust wrapper, designed by Susan Schwaab, reproduces Steadman's title page illustration with titles in red, blue, and black to front cover, titles to spine, a photograph of the author and "Dr Gonzo", and a cutting and sardonic autobiographical blurb to rear cover; unprice-clipped, originally priced at $5.95. Dust wrapper shows well, with minor tear to front hinge, slight bumping to spine ends consistent with shelfwear, slightly tanned to top front edge, slightly soiled. Binding is tight and attractive, with corresponding fading at top front edge. Internally clean, if Thompson's work can be so described, without any signs of foxing. Considered a seminal American novel, as well as a foundational document to the gonzo school of journalism, Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas is a roman a clef recounting of a drug fuelled trip to report on the Mint 400 motorcycle race. The conceit of sports writing soon gives way to Thompson's vivid prose style, and the novel has only a minor brush with plot. A reading experience not unlike being locked in a tumble dryer with David Lynch, Ernest Hemingway and a pillowcase full of scorpions. It is a book that everybody should read, if only for the reason that it has been responsible (like "Catcher in the Rye" and "American Psycho") for some of the most interesting and also some of the most boring and banal conversations in the history of mankind. Listed in The Telegraph's 20 Best Travel Books of All Time. Bookseller Inventory # 43350
