BURROUGHS, William S. and GYSIN, Brion
The Third Mind
NY, Seaver Books, (1982). First thus, a paperback edition. Inscribed by the author: "To Bob Jackson/ who got the Burroughs archives into America/ with friendship and respect/ William S. Burroughs/ November 3, 1985." Mild cover splaying, else fine in wrappers. An historically notable copy: Jackson had saved Burroughs' papers from falling into obscurity when Roberto Altmann's plans for an arts center in Liechtenstein fell through. Burroughs' papers were to have been a centerpiece of the research collection of the institute and instead were left in their boxes, untouched and unseen by anyone for over a decade, until Jackson's purchase of the archive.
