Go

By Holmes, John Clellon

Mamaroneck, New York: Paul P. Appel, 1977. Octavo. 311p. Originally, published in 1952 GO is generally recognized as the first Beat Generation novel. It appeared five years before On the Road and provides the first genuine picture of the Beats before they began their publishing career. His characters are based on graphic portrayals of Kerouac (called Pasternak) , Ginsberg (called Stofsky, Neal Cassady along with lost girls, junkies, thieves and hipsters. Essential for understanding the origin of the Beats by one who was one of them. His book became scarce immediately and was virtually suppressed since those who bought the rights to it felt they would face censorship issues. It captures what was the Beat scene in New York in a way that still reminds us of that world where conventional morals and lifestyle were not recognized but disregarded as relics of the past as consciousness and honesty was explored relentlessly by a young Kerouac and Ginsberg. Bound in red cloth, spine lettering gilt, bump to upper edge near head. A very nice copy in very nice unclipped dust jacket.

Visions of Cody

By Kerouac, Jack

New York; (1972): McGraw Hill. First Edition. Octavo. First printing with an introduction by Allen Ginsberg. 398pp. A major novel. One of Kerouac's most important works written 1951-1952. Kerouac describes passionately a bygone era, the nostalgia of eating in the American diner, the movie houses where the marquee has the movie title in moveable lettering which oftentimes is misspelled, the jazz clubs, the cheap hotels, the all-night wine-drinking and pot-smoking sessions, even the slang of that era was different; that "cat" today is that "dude". This is Jack Duluoz, the narrator of this book, memories of the towns where he and Cody had walked the streets. Here is the America of the late forties and early fifties that Kerouac knew so well. Unfortunately, it was not published until after his death. Bound in maroon cloth, spine lettering gilt, a fine sharp cornered copy in a near fine unclipped pictorial dust jacket with small area of damp staining near foot.
