A propos de cet article

New York: Seaver Books. 1981. F First Edition Thus. S Paperback. Very Good. Slight rubbing and browning to wrappers (chiefly to edges); slight internal warping at spine edges (midsections); slight internal browning to edges. [8], 115 pages. First US softcover issue of the scenario based on the dying words of the notorious gangster figure, complete with vintage photographs (to enhance the "film script" aspect). Originally published in Great Britain in 1970 (see Maynard & Miles A17). "First Paperbound Edition 1981 / First Printing 1981" (title page verso). Signed and inscribed by Burroughs in black ink on half-title page: "For Steve Lowe / all the best / from / The Dutchman / William S. Burroughs / July 29, 1985 / Boulder". Provenance: From the estate of Steven Harrison Lowe (formerly of Desert Hot Springs, CA). From the early 1970s until 1997, Lowe was an assistant to and collaborator with author, artist, cultural phenomenon and outcast William S. Burroughs. The two men enjoyed a long friendship and created art pieces, many of which were shown in the 1980s and 1990s at Casa Sin Nombre, Lowe's art gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico. William S. Burroughs (1914-97) was born in the Midwest, and graduated from Harvard with an art degree in 1936. He was often a rascal, notorious for his addiction to heroin, and the shooting of his wife at a party in Mexico (the so-called "William Tell" incident). He'd worked and played in Vienna, Paris, London, Tangiers, Chicago, Mexico, and New York before finally retiring to Lawrence, Kansas in the 1990s, where he died. He stood the literary establishment on its ear in 1959 with the publication of his Beat classic Naked Lunch. During the 1980s, Burroughs combined his predilection for firearms with his desire to paint. His "gunshot paintings" were nearly as controversial in the art world as Naked Lunch had been in the literary world decades earlier. Signed: I Signed by Author. N° de réf. du libraire L071094
