New York: Random House, 1972. First Edition Stated . Hard Back. Very Good/Good. 5 3/4" x 8 1/2. Steadman, Ralph - Drawings. 206 Pages. First Edition stated below number line 97532468 There is a hint of fading at the top and bottom of the gray boards and foxing predominately on top page edges. Dust jacket has spots and small (1/2") tear top spine . Dust jacket has been protected with Gaylord vinyl covering and 5.95 flap price is unclipped. Heralded as the best book on the dope decade, Hunter Thompson's documented drug orgy through Las Vegas would no doubt leave Nancy Reagan blushing. Under the pseudonym of Raoul Duke, Thompson travels with his Samoan attorney, Dr. Gonzo, in a souped-up convertible dubbed the Great Red Shark. In the trunk, they hide two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a salt shaker half-full of cocaine and a whole galaxy of multicolored uppers, downers, and screamers. A quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a… Read More

Description:
A Near Fine copy with the usual touch of sunning to board edges in a Near Fine bright unclipped dust jacket with a short closed edge tear to the top edge of the front panel and a crease to the front flap. No names, writing, tears or chips to the jacket. The book is a roman à clef, rooted in autobiographical incidents. The story follows its protagonist, Raoul Duke, and his attorney, Dr. Gonzo, as they descend on Las Vegas to chase the American Dream through a drug-induced haze, all the while ruminating on the failure of the 1960s countercultural movement. The work is Thompson's most famous, and is noted for its lurid descriptions of illegal drug use, its early retrospective on the culture of the 1960s, and its popularization of Thompson's highly subjective blend of fact and fiction that has become known as gonzo journalism.
