San Francisco: City Lights, 1956. First edition. First issue, with Lucien Carr noted in the dedication, 2-page introduction by William Carlos Williams, and no mention of printing on the copyright page. SIGNED by Allen Ginsberg and Lawrence Ferlinghetti in the same pen at City Lights. Ginsberg has signed just below his name, and added "AH," the date of the signing ("3/27/91"), and "City Lights" below the publisher's printed information. Ferlinghetti has signed vertically along the left edge: "Ferlinghetti, editor."
Very Good or better in wrappers with the original white title band. Some light rubbing to the wrappers, some foxing along the spine, and at the rear panel. A very presentable copy of Ginsberg's landmark first book, signed at the legendary location where it was published on the 35th anniversary of its issue. Very Good (Item #546)
