The Retreat DiariesTags: Eric Shoaf, William Burroughs
New York: City Moon 1976, a limited edition of 26 lettered copies signed by the author. The limited edition copies were issued in a special envelope die cut to reveal the color cover. There is some confusion about this publication since Morgan’s bibliography on Ginsberg (1994) notes that the limited edition copies were never distributed and are still in storage, but that some copies may have “escaped.” Clearly some copies have made it onto the market as one of the lettered copies can be found in the collection at Kent State University Library, and other Burroughs collectors have copies as well.
_____ an edition of 74 copies with a colored wrapper issued in an envelope, not signed.
