About this Item: City Lights (1962), San Francisco, 1962. Wraps. Condition: Near fine. Later printing. 12mo. Stapled wraps, light toning, handling wear at edges, overall clean, unmarked. INSCRIBED by Ginsberg to title page: "To Betty Benson - Allen Ginsberg / Jan 30, 1964." The eleventh printing of Ginsberg's landmark poem, number four in the Pocket Poets Series. As the title of the 2006 book in honor of fiftieth anniversary described Â"Howl,Â" it was without exaggeration Â"the poem that changed America.Â" When HOWL was published in the fall of 1956 by Lawrence Ferlinghetti s City Lights Books, no one was prepared for the effect it would have on both literature and the culture at large. The book sold through its initial 1000-copy print run in just a few months, and a second printing was ordered from Villier s in London. Though Ferlinghetti made efforts to temper the work prior to publication (replacing the more offensive words with ellipses), when the books arrived in San Francisco from the UK, more than 500 copies were seized by US Customs authorities for obscenity, an event which brought the poem  and its author  immediately to national attention, and led to one of the most important censorship trials of the 20th century. The City Lights edition has never been out of print, having sold upwards of a million copies, and Ginsberg s Â"angelheaded hipstersÂ" pioneered not only a more confessional mode of American poetry, but helped launch numerous youth movements from beatniks to hippies, Situationists to punks. A handsome signed vintage copy of this landmark of gay rights, free speech, protest, censorship, and the counterculture. Seller Inventory # 23308

About this Item: City Lights Pocket Bookshop, San Francisco, 1956. Original wraps. Condition: Near Fine. A remarkable Association copy of the 1956 correct 1st edition. This copy not only conforms to all the original issue points 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, all critically important to the birth and evolution of "Howl", Lucien Carr's appears to be the most elusive. We know that Carr's 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 as a very important muse to this budding literary scene. A fresh, tight copy, immaculate internally and easily Near Fine overall, while legitimately approaching Fine (even down to its unrusted staple). Also includes a hand-made chemise (signed by Ginsberg at a later date), a folded cardboard reproduction of the book's front cover which, among other things, capably protects the fragile 1st edition and no doubt helps to explain its remarkable condition. Of the 1,000 copies of "Howl" initially published, this must certainly rank as among the very most historic and significant. Seller Inventory # 13503
