The Exterminator.

SF: The Auerhahn Press, 1960. First edition. Wrps. Designed and printed by Dave Haselwood. Cover calligraphy by Brion Gysin. SIGNED on the title page by William Burroughs (an early signature, without his middle initial). The second collection of cut-ups, with additional permutations and four pages of calligraphic drawings by Brion Gysin. Much of the material in it had been produced before 'Minutes To Go' was published, by which time Gregory Corso had expressed his disapproval of the method and Sinclair Beiles had flipped out, driven mad by cut-ups, according to Burroughs. Burroughs first sent the manuscript of 'The Exterminator' to Dave Haselwood in late December 1959, and after several alterations, deletions and additions over the course of the following months, it was finally published in July 1960 by Haselwood's Auerhahn Press in San Francisco (Burroughs's first American publisher since 'Junkie', and similarly located for him by Allen Ginsberg). Near Fine.
