London: John Calder in association with Olympia Press, November 1964. First UK edition. Dustwrapper cover photo of the author by Ian Sommerville. Rather than the American edition's title, John Calder used the Olympia version, re-instating the definite article. Burroughs himself usually referred to the novel as "Naked Lunch" in his letters, but "The Naked Lunch" is how it is known in the UK. The contents are the same as the American first edition. Light bump to tail of spine, o/w a Near Fine copy in an unusually bright, clean and unfaded Near Fine dw. Uncommon in this condition.
