(BURROUGHS, William S.)
The Harvard Freshman Red Book, Class of 1936
Cambridge, Harvard, (1933). The freshman yearbook for Burroughs' class. Includes a photograph of William Seward Burroughs at 19 years old. One of Burroughs' classmates was James Laughlin, who founded New Directions publishing company in 1936 -- each of the two playing important but disparate roles in shaping the American literature of the next half century. Rubbing to joints; play in the binding; owner name front flyleaf and a few pencil check marks next to some photos. A very good copy. [#033002] $375
