Item Description: Ace Books, New York, 1953. First Edition. No. D-15. First Edition, a paperback original. INSCRIBED by Burroughs, once on the title page of "Junkie": "For Allen De Loach / With friendship and all best wishes / William Lee Burroughs / April 27, 1974"; and once on the title page of Maurice Helbrant's "Narcotic Agent," printed dos-a-dos with "Junkie": "For Allen De Loach / William S. Burroughs."Burroughs' first book, inscribed to a close friend and important supporter. Allen De Loach edited the mimeo journal "Intrepid" out of Buffalo, New York. Like "Floating Bear," "Intrepid" was a mailing-list-distributed mimeo. Its issue 14/15 was dedicated entirely to the work of Burroughs and was the first serious and comprehensive examination of Burroughs' post-"Naked Lunch" work. De Loach often hosted Burroughs both at his home and for readings and events at SUNY Buffalo, where he also taught. Their friendship continued until Burroughs' death. De Loach also published most of the Beats under his Intrepid Press imprint, including books from Allen Ginsberg, Peter Orlovsky, Ray Bremser, and Burroughs himself. Burroughs, under his William Lee pseudonym, also edited **Buffalo Cold Spring Precinct 23 Bulletin** (Buffalo NY: Intrepid Press 1971). A warm and significant association. Very good in original pictorial wrappers. Some mild, inoffensive creasing and rubbing to the wrapper. Pages mildly toned. Else clean and sound. [Maynard and Miles A1]. Bookseller Inventory # 126517
