(Cambridge, Massachusetts): Cherry Valley Editions. 1978. First. First edition. Perfectbound wrappers. Lightly rubbed, near fine. Inscribed: "Allen Ginsberg for Elbert Lenrow." And with an additional notation by Ginsberg that credits the book's opening quotation. Lenrow was a professor at the New School who became friends with Jack Kerouac while he was still a student. Kerouac in turn introduced him to Allen Ginsberg and Neal Cassidy, who would often gather at Lenrow's Central Park West apartment for informal discussions about life and literature. He later penned a book about his friendship with Kerouac and remained in contact with Ginsberg until Lenrow's death in 1993. A nice association. . (Inventory #: 408001)
