About this Item: City Lights Books (October,1976), San Francisco, 1976. 28th Printing. Fine in stiff printed wrappers (slight darkening to spine edges but overall clean, bright and tight). This copy is nicely signed (just signed) by Ginsberg on the title page. An excellent copy of this landmark book in its original format. Whitman had Leaves of Grass and Ginsberg dragged him into Twentieth Century post-war America with Howl. It is hard to overestimate the importance of this book in the canon of American poetry.

About this Item: City Lights, San Francisco, 1956. Paperback. Condition: Near Fine. Staple-bound wraps; small 8vo; pp. 44. Spine and cover lightly toned; else fine. The scarce first edition of Ginsberg's first book; subsequent printings remove Ginsberg's dedication to Lucien Carr -- "Lucien Carr, recently promoted to Night Bureau Manager of New York United Press" -- as Carr wanted to more publicity following his charge of second-degree murder for the killing of David Kammerer. A presentation copy, inscribed on the title-p., "For Helen in memory of the mad female neighbor over Minettas. Allen." Ginsberg's Howl was one of the key works of the Beat Generation and its debut at the famed Six Gallery in 1955 marked the coming out of a new dissent in American poetry and culture. The Beats' critique and departure from the stufling conformity of the 1950s represented the start of the cultural revolution of the 1960s and provided the initial glimpses of the radicalism that would become prominent during the decade of the sixties. The Beats were profoundly influenced by the realities of the 1950s -- they lived in the shadow of the nuclear bomb and were haunted by the possibility of death at the hands of nuclear machinery and by the state of the world. The major themes identified in "Howl" -- madness, nakedness, and secrecy -- were omnipresent features of the United States in the 1950s and the Beats took it upon themselves to recognize and challenge these themes through art. The Beats hoped that they could foster a generalized awakening of the populace and ginsberg specifically sough to "jolt America awake" with the content and form of "Howl," and in many ways, "Howl" would both echo cultural changes already under way and usher in new ones as the 1950s moved into the 1960s. Helen Elliott met Allen Ginsberg while they were undergraduates at Columbia University in the late 1940s, and remained friends during the decades that followed, with Elliott introducing Ginsberg to her literary circles in New York, providing him with a place to stay, and occasionally writing him checks. While Elliott was friends with other Beat writers, such as Jack Kerouac, she and Ginsberg were closest. "Minettas" in his inscription refers, of course, to the Minetta Tavern, the great Beat haunt located at 113 MacDougal Street, where Ginsberg reportedly sipped alcohol for the first time in the 1940s. First Edition. The Pocket Poet Series, Number 4. Seller Inventory # D14114

About this Item: City Lights Pocket Bookshop, San Francisco, 1956. Original wraps. Condition: Near Fine. A remarkable Association copy of the 1956 1st City Lights edition (preceded only by an impossibly scarce {purportedly 25 copies} 1955 mimeographed edition of only the poem "Howl"). This copy not only conforms to all the original issue points required of the inaugural Pocket Poet edition but is in beautiful, near-pristine condition. Furthermore, THIS COPY IS SIGNED BY 5 OF THE KEY FIGURES IN THE BOOK'S GENESIS: 1) ALLEN GINSBERG (on the title page); 2) LAWRENCE FERLINGHETTI (on the copyright page); 3) LUCIEN CARR (on the dedication page); 4) WILLIAM BURROUGHS (also on the dedication page); and 5) CARL SOLOMON (on the first blank endpaper). In other words, this copy is signed by the book's author, its publisher and by 3 of its 5 dedicatees (only Jack Kerouac's and Neal Cassady's signatures are missing from this copy). Notably, of the 5 signatures, Lucien Carr's appears to be the most elusive of all on copies of "Howl". We know that his relationship with the Beats grew tense early on and that he insisted his name be removed from all subsequent printings of "Howl". We also know that Carr himself introduced William Burroughs (an old friend from their St. Louis upbringing) to Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsberg --and that Carr's infamous career at Columbia (as documented in the 2013 film "Kill Your Darlings") saw him not only as an important muse to this budding literary scene but also, incredibly, as someone convicted of homicide and sent to prison (in spite of Kerouac's best efforts to help him cover up the crime). A fresh, tight copy, immaculate internally and easily Near Fine overall, while legitimately approaching Fine (even down to its unrusted staple). Also includes a former owner's hand-made chemise, a handsome, folded cardboard reproduction of the book's front cover. (Somewhere along the line, the former owner of this copy EVEN HAD GINSBERG SIGN THE CHEMISE "Allen Ginsberg for P.O." {Peter Orlovsky?}). Of the 1,000 copies initially published, this must certainly rank as among the most historic --and significant. Seller Inventory # 13503
