The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (FIRST EDITION, FIRST PRINTING)

New York: Farrar, Straus & Giroux, 1968. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 5 3/4 X 8 1/2 Inches. 416 PP. Very Good / Very Good. Item #6984

FROM THE COLLECTION OF AUTHOR AND HISTORIAN WARD BRIGGS JR.

Stated "First Printing, 1968" on the copyright page. The influence of this book, the quintessential novel of "hippy" and/or "psychedelic" life in the 1960's cannot by overstated in my opinion. This is the novel that brought "hippy" to mainstream America and gave power and prominence to the LSD culture adopted by Ken Kesey and the Merry Pranksters.

Bound in original publisher white cloth with "rainbow" color title work to spine. Original dust jacket retains price of $5.95 on front flap. Blue topstain faded. Book is extremely clean and bears the ownership signature of author and historian Ward Briggs Jr. on the FFEP. The DJ shows only slight rubbing and wear to the edges, but is very appealing overall. (NOTE: Nearly a NF copy.).

Price: $375.00
