HarperFlamingo: New York, 1999. Third printing.

Interesting copy, signed by poets John Ashbery and Lawrence Ferlinghetti and inscribed by Ed Sanders; signed by Bob Rosenthal, Ginsberg's secretary and the estate's trustee who also edited the book and wrote the afterword; signed by Beat Photographer Stephen Mills; and also signed by actors Winona Ryder and John Heard as well as Bill Moyers and Steve Allen.  9 signatures in total.

These autographs were collected at a 1999 Beat poetry reading at Sotheby's, a few days before the auctioning of Ginsberg's belongings.  Commemorated in a New York Times article, the reading was attended by a cross-section of Ginsberg's followers.  Sanders in particular was cited for tapping out "an elegy to his departed friends on Kerouac's conga drum".

A very good copy in like dust wrapper.
