A Beautiful 1960 1st Edition in original dust jacket from the 'Father of the Beat Movement'.

'Lonesome Traveler' is a collection of shorts themed around Kerouac's travels in America as well as abroad.

"Kerouac describes the days when he was a day laborer on the railroads in California, and of a long voyage working in the galley of a tramp steamer that sailed around the coasts of America. From the lonely peaks of the Cascade Mountains, where he had a job as a fire lookout, to the art galleries of Paris, he tells his experience."

"There's nothing nobler than to put up with a few inconveniences like snakes and dust for the sake of absolute freedom.", Kerouac once said.

Original black and brown boards. Brown endpapers. In original unclipped ($4.50) dust jacket, with a small remnant of a price sticker on the inside front flap. Dust jacket and inside illustrations by Larry Rivers.

Mild wear to binding. Dust jacket with mild rubbing and edge wear, with light soiling. Presents handsomely in archival mylar.

A superior and quite desirable edition.
