Les anges vagabonds.

Paris: Denoël, September 1987. First printing of the third French edition of Book Two of Desolation Angels, translated by Michel Deutsch. Originally published by Coward McCann in 1965, Desolation Angels is the wild and soulful story of the legendary road trip that Jack Kerouac took before the publication of On the Road, told through the persona of Jack Duluoz and accompanied by his thinly-disguised Beat cohorts Allen Ginsberg, Gregory Corso and William Burroughs.

Crown octavo (8vo), 224 pp. In original cream-colored textured wrappers printed in green and black, perfect bound. Although paperbound, the book was issued in a pictorial gloss-coated dust jacket. As new. Additional photos available on request.
