Frankfurt am Main, Germany: Zweitausendeins, 1978, 1980 and 1982. First editions thus. 8vo. Bindings vary (first two volumes bound in faux snakeskin, the third volume in imitation leather). 744pp., 379pp., and 380pp. respectively, with ribbon page markers.

A three volume anthology printing German translations by Carl Weissner of seven works by William Burroughs. Tipped-in frontispiece photograph of Burroughs by Charles Gatewood to volume I. Volume II SIGNED on the title page by William Burroughs, S. Clay Wilson ("To Bob", probably Wilson's friend, Bob Swick), and by Wilson's then girlfriend, Sabeth Thomas, who contributed the lettering and logos to the covers of the second and third volumes.

Wilson's illustrations appear as a tipped-in frontispiece plate in volume II and occur as full-page inserts later in the volume, and as fold-out inserts in volume III. Wilson has SIGNED the third volume on the title page "To Lonesome Bob - S. Clay Wilson. Sabeth's Birthday Oct. 30 1983", as has Sabeth Thomas.

Burroughs recommended Wilson as an illustrator when Zweitausendeins was originally contracted to publish a three-volume set of his books (Wilson had previously illustrated his short story, 'Fun City in Ba'Dan', for Arcade #4 in 1975). In Wilson's first fold-out illustration for the third volume, 'Die Städte der Roten Nacht', Burroughs himself appears as a character in a typically graphic scene of sex and violence.

Wear to head, tail and edges of spine of volume II, o/w Very Good in original publisher's card slipcases.
