(San Francisco): Straight Arrow Books, (1973). First Edition. Illustrations by Ralph Steadman. First issue/state(?) dust jacket with white border around picture on back panel, price clipped but assume $6.95 price. Gonzo journalism at its best. Thompson's account of the battle for the 1972 presidency, from the Democratic primaries to the eventual showdown between George McGovern and Richard Nixon. Very good with some soiling, rubbing on edges, light foxing page edges, apart from that, binding strong, corners sharp, black end papers, bright lettering on spine. Dust jacket has rubbing and cracking on edges, some soiling, price clipped, still very good.
