Santa Barbara: Bradford Morrow 1979, an edition of 26 lettered copies hardbound in dust jacket which were hors commerce, each signed Burroughs. This passage from Naked Lunch was issued on the 20th Anniversary of its original publication.

_____ an edition of 150 copies numbered and signed by Burroughs, hardbound in dust jacket.

_____ an edition of 324 copies bound in wraps and numbered 151 – 475. Booksellers have long been confused by the apparent “out of series” copies, those being numbered above 324, but the simple explanation is that the softbound wraps edition did not begin with number “1” but rather with number “151.” That is, after the run of the 150 signed hardbound copies.
