Millers' Log 1950
Springfield, Springfield High School, 1950. High school yearbook, from Kesey's freshman year. Includes Kesey's freshman year photo and a picture of him in the Drama Club. Signed by Kesey in full, with an apparent self-caricature. Kesey's signature appears, upside down, on the verso of the rear flyleaf; there are more than 100 other additional signatures and inscriptions in the book. This is the earliest Ken Kesey signature we've ever seen, and the less-than-flattering self-caricature reveals both his sense of humor and, one might infer, his confidence. Rubbing to cloth covers; a very good copy. [#032882] SOLD
