Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

New York: Random House, 1971. First Edition. Hardcover. Near fine with some very light foxing along the top edge in a near fine dust jacket with a small amount of damp staining at the base of the spine not affecting the book.

Originally, in articles in Rolling Stone, Hunter Thompson wrote as a journalist covering the Drug Enforcement Convention in Las Vegas while stoned and observing that strange world from the perspective while a user of illegal drugs with credentials of a journalist.

The work is Thompson's most famous, and is noted for its lurid descriptions of illegal drug use, its early retrospective on the culture of the 1960s, and its popularization of Thompson's highly subjective blend of fact and fiction that has become known as gonzo journalism.
