Item Description: The Viking Press, New York, 1957. First Edition. Kerouac, Jack. ON THE ROAD. Signed. New York: Viking Press, 1957. 8vo., 310pp. A very good or better copy, the white spine lettering partially rubbed, evidence of a bookplate having been removed from the front free endpaper otherwise the book block is clean & free of blemish. Kerouac has signed in black ink at the top of the second blank page which has likely been added later to this copy. Notwithstanding it is indeed signed & as such not to be toyed with as there are only a handful of really top-of-mind modern titles & right beside Catcher & Mockingbird sits OTR or is it the other way round? The dustwrapper is very good or better having been professionally restored with work done primarily at the spine heel & crown. An extremely good copy. Signed by Author. Bookseller Inventory # 30936

Item Description: The Viking Press, New York, 1957. Hardcover. First Edition. The longtime reigning champ of Beat Literature, finally made into a film, disappointing as it was. A significantly above-average copy of a significant book that still resonates with many of its readers nearly sixty years after its initial publication. The book is like new with a small ticket from a California bookstore on the lower front pastedown, a habit of new bookstores that more or less died in the 1960s. The first issue dustwrapper is complete with a hardly noticeable closed half-inch tear to the top of the front and a slightly longer and jagged closed tear to the bottom rear which has mild soiling. Only mild sunning to the spine which has very light wear to the tips but no chipping. Fine in a Near Fine dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 012977

Item Description: The Viking Press, New York, 1957. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. Kerouac, Jack. ON THE ROAD. New York, 1957, The Viking Press, First American Edition. 310 pages. First edition of Jack Kerouac¿s most famous work. That well-loved, wildly exuberant, often funny account of a journey through America and Mexico, Jack Kerouac's On the Road instantly defined a generation following 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 ¿beat generation¿ Kerouac himself named years before. Kerouac in 1950 outlined the "Essentials of Spontaneous Prose" and decided to tell the story of his years on the road with Neal Cassady as if writing a letter to a friend in a form that reflected the improvisational fluidity of jazz. In a letter to a student in 1961, Kerouac wrote: "Dean and I were embarked on a journey through post-Whitman America to FIND that America and to FIND the inherent goodness in American man. It was really a story about 2 Catholic buddies roaming the country in search of God. And we found him." Allen Ginsberg described the work as "spontaneous bop prosody, Kerouac's novel remains electrifying in its thirst for experience and its defiant rebuke of American conformity. On the Road has become a classic 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). This copy is the 1957 true First Edition. With title page date of 1957 and "Published in 1957 by the Viking Press, Inc. 625 Madison Avenue, New York 22" on the copyright page. With Copyright of 1955, 1957 by Jack Kerouac. Dustjacket with Bill English's abstract rectangular drawings in blue, red, and black on the front panel and the spine, printed in bands of blue and red on the rear panel, with a 22-line excerpt "From ON THE ROAD:" on the rear panel. Only 7,500 copies were printed so it is quite scarce. Finely woven black cloth stamped brightly in white on the front boards and the spine. A clean, tight copy. Near Fine condition in a Near Fine DJ, appearing unread, quite scarce in this condition. NZ$9,000. Bookseller Inventory # 000231

Item Description: Viking Press, New York, 1957. First edition. 310pp. Octavo [21 cm.] Black cloth with white stamped titles on front board and backstrip. Near fine/Near fine. Gentle rubbing to the corners of the jacket. Blind owner embossment on the front free endsheet. Name in ink (same as embossment) on the front pastedown near gutter. Kerouac's 'On the Road' is one of the most influential and important novels of the Postwar era, and along with Ginsberg's 'Howl' and Burroughs' 'Naked Lunch' form the Beat holy trinity.A nice clean copy of this important work. Charters A2a."I wrote that for my new [second] wife, to tell her what I'd been through. It's directed toward a woman. That's why women like it. It's sexy because it's addressed to a woman. But if I was writing for my mother, I'd leave many things out. 'Course I had to think of Malcolm Cowley too, the Protestant Establishment. He was literary advisor of Viking. Giroux said, 'My God, Jack, it's like Dostoevskii." Harcourt, Brace editor-in-chief Robert Giroux had it first but said sales manager Ed Hodge "does not approve of the book." I said all right, I'll take it to Viking, and they sat on it for seven years. But I wrote it thinking of those guys. It's not too dirty. And I wanted to give a concise poetic opinion of Neal [Cassidy]. They used to put guys in the nut house for that in the days of Christopher Smart. It changed the whole country." - Jack Kerouac.

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."

Item Description: New York: The Viking Press, 1957. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Publisher's cloth, black dust jacket. A very good copy, with light wear to the spine ends and the front board, minor rubbing to the edges and corners, a light crease to the spine, otherwise a very clean and fresh copy; in a first issue unclipped dust jacket, with light wear to the hinges, minor chipping to the extremities, slight scuffing to rear panel, and very light rubbing to the front panel. Overall, an attractive copy without significant wear, which is most endemic to this title. On the Road is Kerouac's second novel and certainly his most renowned. Before its release in 1957, sections of On the Road were published as articles in a variety of literary magazines and were received well by audiences, prompting the publishers to describe the first complete edition as "a publishing event of no small interest." Today, On the Road is best known as the novel that made Jack Kerouac famous and it remains popular with younger generations. In this work, Kerouac describes his years traveling the United States and Mexico with his friend Neal Cassady in their youthful search for adventure, excitement, and knowledge of self in stream-of-consciousness prose that is as captivating as the story itself. Kerouac wrote the bulk of this novel in three weeks on a singular 120-foot-long scroll and spent years editing and revising it before its publication in 1957. Bookseller Inventory # JK034
