This copy has light shelf wear along with a small, curved, 1 1/2" crease downward from the middle of the top front edge. Otherwise, the book is about fine. This seems to havebeen a copy that was owned by Lawrence Ferlinghetti. His signature is on the top right corner of the title page. More interestingly, there is a Post-It Note on page 185 in the chapter on City Lights that reads, "Wrong on facts" in Ferlinghetti's hand and a blank Post-It on pages 240 and 241 where Ferlinghetti has marked a passage and underlined some information on Gregory Corso. There is a note in the margin that reads, "Not True," followed by "LF" in a circle. These notes give this copy of Campbell's book an added significance. ; B&W Photographs; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 320 pages; Signed by Associated
