(New York): Grove Press, 1961. First edition. Paperback original. Text by Jack Kerouac for the Film by Robert Frank and Alfred Leslie. Illustrated with photographic stills from the film. The film directed by both Robert Frank and Alfred Leslie is "a short cinematographic exhibition of "Beat" life in a Bowery "pad" on New York's Lower East Side, with spontaneous performances by poets Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso, and Peter Orlovsky, painter Larry Rivers, composer David Amram, and other characters drawn from the highest echelons of Beat society". A very good copy with some wear / creasing to covers, and fading to the red lettering at the spine.
