    First Edition, First State of Kesey's One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest, in First State Dust Jacket

    Ken Kesey. One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. New York: The Viking Press, [1962]. First edition, first state with the required text about the Red Cross on pages 9 and 86. Octavo. [viii], 311, [1, blank] pages. Publisher's full green cloth, spine lettered in yellow, first state dust jacket with correct price ($4.95) and Kerouac blurb on front flap. Jacket spine somewhat sunned (as is usual for this title), some wear and a few short tears and chips to jacket, some moderate toning and thumbsoiling to jacket, cloth spine sunned, some rubbing and very minor soiling to binding. Still, a near fine copy which, despite its flaws, shows somewhat better than most copies seen.
