Item #76846 THE HASHEESH EATER. Fitz Hugh Ludlow.


San Francisco: Level Press, 1975. Trade paperback. Limited to 5,000 copies. The first full-length study of the psychological states and physiological effects of psychoactive drug use in American literature. Written by a 20-year-old college student, this De Quincey-inspired memoir steeped in mysticism caused a sensation when it was published in 1857. Since that time it has been generally ignored and forgotten, except by a few pioneers of marijuana research, writers like Aleister Crowley, and the poets of the Beat Generation. Edited by Michael Horowitz. Quarto: 223 p. with 12 plates by Satty. Original paper wrappers with cover art by David Singer and Satty. Near fine. Near fine. Item #76846

Price: $50.00
