On The Road [1st UK Ed]

$1,100.00 inc GST

By Jack Kerouac

A very good first UK edition of the classic Beat novel

Out of stock


  • Narrator Sal Paradise “chronicles the fabulous exploits of his hero Dean Moriarty” as they “continue their hungry, never satisfied pursuit of new experience, saying ‘Yes’ to drink, drugs and sexual adventure, to poetry and danger” – blurb panel
  • A very good copy of the first UK printing [Andre Deutsch, London, 1958]
  • Red boards with bright gilt title etc on spine; foxing and jacket offsetting to endpapers; block edge marked, top foxed; bookseller stamp to inner front board; pencil to ffep; foxing to inner pages; else very clean
  • Iconic jacket design by author Len Deighton; splash mark to base at rear; general rubbing; minimal foxing; some tiny nicks; front flap price-clipped [rear panel still retains 15s net price]; overall excellent example
  • From the estate of Australian film industry personality Bill Collins
