Title: Ferlinghetti, a biography
Publication Date: 1979
Book Condition: Very Good
Dust Jacket Condition: Good -
Edition: First Edition.
Inscribed and SIGNED by Neeli Cherkovski on the front endpaper. The volume is pushed at the spine ends, bumped along the bottom edges, and remainder sprayed on the bottom page edges. The unclipped dust jacket is an eyesore. It is soiled, stained, chipped along the edges, corners, and spine extremeties (nearly wiping out the "F" in Ferlinghetti), and is toned on the spine (although it is hard to tell because of the soiling). This example of how not to treat a dust jacket is currently shielded in a Brodart jacket cover. Bookseller Inventory # 14020122
Synopsis: In the mid-50s a group of San Francisco- based poets and writers emerged as a central force in American letters. Self-styled bohemians, disillusioned with the old American dream of prosperity and conformity, they labeled themselves as the "Beat Generation." Their ranks included Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, Jack Kerouac and this shy young port.

Store Description: Trilby & Co. Books is located in Northern California. The company was founded years ago by a Shetland Sheepdog named Trilby. Trilby's message to her family was brief and direct - the sale of books would increase disposable income and improve the quality of provisions in her food dish. My name is McTavish (picture at left). I am the current CEO of this company, and I approve of her message. Oh, by the way, my speciality is literature, with an emphasis on first editions and signed books.
