Les anges vagabonds.
Paris: Denoël (Les Lettres Nouvelles), 1968. French first 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 [not in Charters].
Crown octavo (8vo), 224 pp. In original light yellow uncoated wrappers printed in black, perfect bound. Complete with publisher’s elusive orange wraparound band. Near fine, tightly bound and clean. Additional photos available on request.
