All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted.

(San Francisco), Auerhahn, 1960. A collaboration by Burroughs' with his longtime friend, Brion Gysin. This copy is inscribed by Burroughs to Ted Berrigan in New York in "1953" -- we're guessing he meant 1963. Also signed by Gysin, who designed the cover and illustrated the book, in addition to providing his own texts. Printed by Dave Haselwood, who later reissued this title under his own imprint in 1967. This edition is estimated by the bibliographer at 1000 copies. Covers and four illustrations by Gysin. Very good in wrappers. Seldom found signed by both, let alone as an excellent association copy as well. [#033074] $1,500
(Geneva), Lagarde, [1975]. Copy No. 6 of 50 numbered prints of the photograph used to advertise Le Colloque de Tanger, a symposium celebrating the work of Burroughs and Gysin, in Geneva in 1975. This is an original print of the photograph used to illustrate the poster announcing the event, which features Burroughs' and Gysin's heads superimposed on top of statues of John Calvin and Theodore Beza. Although not issued as a signed edition, as best we can tell, this image is signed by Burroughs and Gysin, and dated in Geneva, 26 September 1975. A book and a portfolio of photographs from the event were issued the following year, in 1976. This photo is not to be confused with that publication. Black and white. 9-1/2" x 12". Small stains to margins and verso. Near fine. [#033148] $750
NY, Viking, (1978). A collaborative effort by these longtime associates and an important documentation of their technique of assembling collages of images, both visual and literary. This copy is inscribed by Burroughs in 1984: "For Bob Jackson/ all the best/ William Burroughs/ for Brion Gysin." Fine in a near fine dust jacket. [#033113] $450
San Francisco, Dave Haselwood Books, 1967. Second edition, a reissue by Dave Haselwood, who designed and printed the first, Auerhahn Press, issue, in 1960.
