About This Item

San Francisco: Straight Arrow Books, 1973. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. First printing stated of the gonzo journalist's most fully realized and respected book. 506 pp. Illustrations by Ralph Steadman. Very good indeed in black boards with minor scuffs and rubbing. First state dustwrapper is notably NOT price-clipped. A sharp copy with minor small chips to spine ends. Uncommon in the first state dustwrapper. This copy boldly INITIALED by Thompson on the half-title page.


American politics and gonzo journalism. Thompson's wit and cutting commentary makes short work of the high political dramatic farce of the 1972 presidential race between McGovern/Nixon.
