Description:
New York: The Viking Press, 1962. First edition of the author's classic first book. Octavo, original cloth. Signed by Ken Kesey, Milos Forman and Jack Nicholson. Fine in a near fine first-issue dust jacket. Jacket design by Paul Bacon. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Most rare and desirable signed by these three contributors. Published in February 1962, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest was a great critical and commercial success. Over the subsequent decades the book's reputation and readership swelled as millions recognized Kesey's psychiatric ward as a not-so-fantastic metaphor for a modern world in which bureaucracy and technology combine to diminish humanity, individuality and diversity. Adapted to the stage in 1963, with Kirk Douglas in the lead, and was the basis for the highly successful 1975 film directed by Milos Forman and starring Jack Nicholson. Considered to be one of the greatest films ever made, One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest ranks number 33 on the… Read More

Description:
New York: The Viking Press, 1962. First edition. Very good in very good plus jacket. Inscribed first printing of the influential literary achievement by a towering feature of the counterculture. The basis for one of the defining films of 1970s cinema, Kesey's novel was first published more than a decade earlier, at the dawn of the '60s, and is all the more shocking for that original context. The novel is set in a men's psychiatric hospital among inmates who, afflicted variously by mental illness, minority status, criminal convictions, and aggressive nonconformity, are all subject to the indignities and cruelties of nurses and doctors alike. Kesey's sadistic Nurse Ratched lives on as a quasi-folk myth, like the real Lizzie Borden and the fictional Annie Wilkes; her name is perhaps better known even than Kesey's own. An enduring attack on the establishment's power to punish and enforce. 8'' x 5.5''. Original green cloth, spine lettered in yellow. Original unclipped color dust jacket designed by Paul… Read More

Description:
New York: The Viking Press, 1990. First Edition. Near Fine. First edition. A uniquely decorated copy, fully marbled in purple, blue, yellow, and green by Kesey on covers as well as edges. Painted signature of Kesey on front free endpaper. According his son Zane, Ken began experimenting with marbling techniques in 1964 while traveling on the bus FURTHUR and dropping acid for the first time. Oil paint floating in a puddle entranced the Merry Pranksters and they began dipping objects into the mixture, creating instant objet d'art. Later in his life Kesey returned to this technique, psychedelically marbling, finishing, and signing around 15-20 books total. This is one of those scarce copies. Near Fine with paint slightly rubbed off extremities. No jacket. A psychedelic lollipop swirl of original art from the acclaimed writer and countercultural icon.

First UK Edition; A Near Fine book in a Near Fine dust jacket. SIGNED by the author with a silver pen, then enhanced with dots, on the front free paper. A stunning copy of this novel, the author's first and considered a classic of 20th century literature and basis for the award winning film starring Jack Nicholson; scarce in the first UK, particularly signed. This copy is in near fine condition with a square, tight binding, bright silver lettering and blue design over clean maroon boards, and bright, white pages throughout; the book does have very minor shelf wear to the lower edges, a couple of very tiny nicks to the page edges at p. 27-29, and a blacked out line on the copyright page (author's name blacked out, I'm guessing Kesey did it when he signed the book), else fine. Housed in a crisp and bright near fine dust jacket that shows only light rubbing to the spine ends and a mild age-toning to the spine and flaps, else fine.
