The Postcript to the book, 'The Wanderers' was in fact composed by the Learys during their stay in Switzerland after an escape from a US prison aided by the Weathermen. A true classic of the Psychedelic underground. A fine copy with a near fine jacket which has a couple of small biro marks on the bottom edge of the rear panel, signed by Ball on full title.
