San Francisco: City Lights Books, 1963. 15.8x12.3cm: 98pp. The Pocket Poets Series: Number Eighteen. First Edition, First Printing, meeting all points as indicated in Cook’s Pocket Poet’s Bibliography. One of only 3000 copies printed, with this most certainly the nicest copy that we have ever handled! Stiff white wrappers printed in black. Just a trace of wear along the bottom edge of the front wrapper. An exceptionally bright and tight copy. Fine.
Reality Sandwiches is Ginsberg’s third book in the City Lights Pocket Poets Series. Ginsberg dedicated this work to his friend and fellow Beat poet Gregory Corso. The book features the poems On Burroughs' Work, Dream Record: June 8, 1955, and To An Old Poet In Peru.
