New York: Random House, 1971.
First edition, first printing. Signed by illustrator Ralph Steadman with a small sketch on the half-title page. Bound in publisher's original paper-covered boards over black cloth spine lettered in silver. Very Good with lean to binding, light sunning to edges and toning to pages. In a Very Good unclipped dust jacket with rubbing, toning, edge wear, creasing to flaps and chipping at the foot of the spine. A drugged-out mixture of travel writing, journalism and literature set to boil against the desert heat. A lovely copy of Thompson's vivid and wild journey, which seems inseparable from Steadman's iconic, perfectly paired illustrations; signed by the illustrator. Item #140942289
