Lisbon: Ulisseia (Sucessos literários #27), 1960 [Charters D54]. First Portuguese edition of On the Road, translated by Hélder dos Santos Carvalho. Front cover artwork by Paulo Guilherme. Exceedingly scarce.

Considered a defining work of the postwar beat and counter culture generations, On the Road was originally published by Viking Press on 5th September, 1957. The novel was chosen by Time magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005, and the Modern Library ranked the book 55th on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.

Duodecimo (12mo), 404 pp. In original stiff illustrated gloss-coated wrappers. All outer edges of the text block are untrimmed and unstained. Book store label inside and a few tiny rips to the edges of the front wrapper, else just about near fine. Additional photos available on request.
