A true rarity. Thompson , First published in Great Britain, ". Apparently, according to well-respected American rare book dealer Ken Lopez, "Thompson at one point thought that the British edition had only been issued in paperback, as he had never seen a hardcover copy of it".
Hell's Angels was Hunter S. Thompson's first published book. It was the book that launched his career as a writer. Front cover blurb: "The California motorcycle gang. The real life Wild Ones". From inner front flap of dustjacket in full : "The Angels are a Californian motor-cycle gang that rides the highways in packs. They may be high on beer, wine, marijuana or LSD. They are armed and they are provoked easily. It is sometimes difficult to say whether their sexual activities are orgy or gang rape.
The Press and television wait for them to descend on and terrorize some resort town and the tourists gather to watch. Hunter Thompson rode with the Hell's Angels and lived uneasily with them until one day they grew bored with him and casually beat him up. He discounts conventional explanations of youthful rebellion: 'The Hell's Angels are a logical product of the culture that now claims to be shocked at their existence - They are acting out the daydreams of millions of losers.
It is an encounter that forces one to take sides. The Hell's Angels are 'the first wave of a future that nothing in our history has prepared us to cope with'. They have rejected every rule and standard of society just as they have been defeated by its competition. If they have to lose we may all have to lose for, as Dr Johnson said, 'He who makes a beast of himself gets rid of being a man'.
Mild overall slight rubbing to dustjacket, a bare trace of edgewear to dustjacket, very faint ghosting of removed price-sticker over original printed price on inner front flap, otherwise overall a very nice clean tight solid hardcover copy. The book itself is FINE with no flaws. The dustjacket is now protected in removable clear Bro-dart cover. A remarkably superb collectible copy of the extremely scarce first UK edition.
