The first two pictures are of a 1st Edition 1st print Curse of Lono, signed by Hunter Thompson "I am Lono HST"

The 3rd and 4th pictures are of one of my prized possessions. It’s a 1st edition, 1st print of Fear and Loathing In America. Starting from the top of the page the signatures are… Douglas Brinkley (The Editor), Hal Haddon, Ralph Steadman, Anita Thompson, Hunter S. Thompson, Former Senator Gary Hart, George Stranahan, Juan Thompson, and Former Senator George Mc Govern (With the inscription “Who Loved Hunter”)

A bit of trivia.

Douglas Brinkley was a good friend of Hunter Thompsn and the editor of this book, The Proud Highway and the upcoming Mutineer, Rants, Ravings and Missives. He is also the authorized biographer of Jack Kerouac and has written profiles of Kurt Vonnegut and Ken Kesey for Rolling Stone magazine.

George Mc Govern was one of the politicians that Thompson focused on in Fear and Loathing Campaign Trail 72. Gary Hart was George Mc Governs campaign manager for the same campaign. Gary Hart also tried his hand in running for president in 1984, but lost the nomination to Walter Mondale, Hal Haddon was Hart’s campaign manager for that attempt.

George Stranahan was a long time friend of Thompson and founder of Flying Dog Brewery. Hunter introduced Stranahan to Ralph Steadman who now does all the art work for the Flying Dog labels.

    If you can grab "Ammo Books" Gonzo pictorial history of Hunter, I believe it's in that.. Better than wrecking an old book..
