The 4-Page Manuscript of Allen Ginsberg's Introduction to Herbert Huncke's "The Evening Sun Turned Crimson"

1968. Manuscript. The 4 pg. typed manuscript of Allen Ginsberg's scorching introduction to the 1980 1st edition of Herbert Huncke's "The Evening Sun Turned Crimson", which, with additional material, would evolve into Huncke's 1990 memoir "Guilty of Everything". The manuscript is signed by Ginsberg and, below his signature, he writes "This intro to Evening Sun Turned Crimson re-typed and re-cycled for use w/ "Guilty of Everything" by Goodman, likely." ("Goodman" refers to Roger B. Goodman, who edited "Guilty of Everything"). There's a typed title page with Huncke's and Roger Goodman's addresses (Huncke's scratched out in favor of a "c/o Dahlberg", followed by his address), a dedication pg. ("to Louis Cartwright") and then 4 8 1/2" x 11" typed pages. The onion-skin pages are bright and clean, with one small correction in ink on pg. 2 (presumably in Ginsberg's hand) and 2 small chips inconspicuously along the upper left corners. Also included with the manuscript is a clean, Near Fine example of the stated 1st edition of "The Evening Sun Turned Crimson" (printed in its original pictorial wrappers and published by Cherry Valley Editions, Cherry Valley, NY). The book of course offers the first printed version of this Ginsberg manuscript. Very Good +. Item #19413
