    William S. Burroughs. Nova Express. New York: Grove Press, Inc., [1964].

    First printing. Octavo. 187 pages.

    Publisher's orange cloth covers with the spine lettered in black. Illustrated dust jacket designed by Roy Kuhlman. Very minor rubbing to the jacket, slight discoloration to the spine, some closed tears to the edge of the jacket. Altogether a very good copy.
