    All Aboard With the Merry Pranksters

    Tom Wolfe. The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test. New York: Farrar Straus and Giroux, [1968].

    First edition. Signed by Wolfe on title page. Octavo. 416 pages.

    Publisher's white cloth with multi-colored spine titles. Modestly darkened edges with softly bumped spine ends. Faint fading to top page edge. Dust jacket is lightly rubbed with minor wear to the edges. A near fine copy.

    The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test established Tom Wolfe as one of the leading exponents of the New Journalism with his much-acclaimed literary non-fiction which became a touchstone of the late-'60s LSD-fueled hippie movement. The story chronicles the madcap adventures of author Ken Kesey and his Merry Pranksters as they experiment with the effects of LSD and other mind-expanding drugs, all while grooving to the acid rock sounds of the Grateful Dead in their day-glo school bus.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
