Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.
A fine example of the true first edition.
Musing on the collapse of the 60s dream in a drug induced haze whilst careering through Vegas, Hunter S. Thompson’s Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas is a truly 'savage journey to the heart of the American Dream’ and has gone on to become a cult classic in 20th-century american literature. Famously brought to the big screen with Terry Gilliam in the director's chair, Johnny Depp as Raoul Duke (Thompson) and Benicio Del Toro standing (or falling!) as his attorney.
First edition, first impression. A fine copy with like jacket. Easily the best of the market currently. Original black cloth-backed grey boards, spine lettered in silver, Ralph Steadman design decoration to front board in blind. With the pictorial dust jacket.
