On offer a Folio Society edition of the modern classic' On the Road' by Jack Kerouac. Included is an original cheque/ check that has been signed by jack Kerouac. Both cheque/ check and the book are in excellent condition as pictured.
Over 95 percent of this item's value stem from the triple signed cheque. Kerouac signatures are incredibly scarce, and this is excellent value. The cheque is dated 20 May 1958, approximately one year after the publication of'On the Road', and drawn for USD80 on the Security National Bank of Northport, New York. It is signed three times.The payee is'Jack Kerouac', the front is signed by'Jack Kerouac' and endorsed by'Jack Kerouac' on verso. The account owners are Jack Kerouac and Gabrielle Kerouac, Jack's mother. This is a very rare item as Kerouac cheques come up very rarely. It is also unique by the fact that it is signed thrice and by the indication of the the account owners.
Kerouac signatures are exceptionally rare since'On the Road' made Jack a star overnight and Kerouac retreated from public. Kerouac died in 1967 as a result of alcohol abuse, so not many signed first edition books exist. If you search for any signed books by Kerouac on abebooks you will not find anything in the three figure range.
