About this Item: City Lights, San Francisco, 1956. Later printing of this principal work of the Beat Generation. Small octavo, original wrappers as issued. Signed by the author on the title page, "Allen Ginsberg 11/12/83 Reed." In near fine condition. Introduction by William Carlos Williams. Howl and Other Poems is a collection of poetry by Allen Ginsberg published November 1, 1956. It contains Ginsberg's most famous poem, "Howl", which is considered to be one of the principal works of the Beat Generation as well as "A Supermarket in California", "Transcription of Organ Music", "Sunflower Sutra", "America", "In the Baggage Room at Greyhound", and some of his earlier works. For printing the collection, the publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti, another well-known poet, was arrested and charged with obscenity. On October 3, 1957, Judge Clayton W. Horn found Ferlinghetti not guilty of the obscenity charge, and 5,000 more copies of the text were printed to meet the public demand, which had risen in response to the publicity surrounding the trial. "Howl and Other Poems" contains two of the most well-known poems from the Beat Generation, "Howl" and "A Supermarket in California", which have been reprinted in other collections, including the Norton Anthology of American Literature.

About this Item: 1958. San Francisco: City Lights Books., 1958. 12mo. Original black and white printed wraps, pp.44. Slightly worn along the spine, text fine. First edition, sixth printing. Early issue of the quintessential poetry collection from this noted Beat author, with introduction by William Carlos Williams. 'Howl' is one of the principle works of the Beat generation, but it was not without its controversy. For publishing the collection Lawrence Ferlinghetti, a beat poet in his own right, was arrested and charged with obscenity. After a very public trial Ferlinghetti was released, and another 5,000 copies were published to cope with the public demanded generated from the arrest. Signed bookplate of Ruth Gordon and her husband, the director Garson Kanin, inside front cover. Gordon was well known for her performances in Rosemary's Baby and the Clint Eastwood films Every Which Way but Loose . She won an academy award, an Emmy, and two Golden Globe awards, as well as three Academy Award nominations for her writing. An interesting association with an actress who was an iconoclast in her own right. Seller Inventory # 2102959

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
