Hardcover. First edition. Introduction by Allen Ginsberg (misspelled on the cover as "Ginsburg"). Octavo. [26]pp. Papercovered boards with cloth spine and illustrated in full color. Very good or better with rubbing to the boards, light wear at the corners and a few tiny scrapes. Inscribed and Signed in a childish hand by author/illustrator Harley Flanagan, who at 12 became the drummer for the punk band, The Stimulators, and went on to found the seminal hardcore band, The Cro-Mags. Flanagan was just nine when this collection of his two self-illustrated stories was published by his mother, a hippie named Rosebud who had lived on a farm with Ginsberg and enlisted the poet to pen the introduction to this volume. An uncommon book in any state, we've never seen another copy with a contemporary inscription from Flanagan. Certainly one of the more unusual items from Ginsberg's career and a curious piece of punk history. *Morgan* B123.
