Autobiography of “Turn On, Tune In, Drop Out” LSD evangelist, Timothy Leary (1920-1996). “The author’s first full-length autobiography, embellished with photographs, mostly unpublished, from various periods of his life, depicting other family members and important associates and events. Each of the forty-one chapters is prefaced with a biographical notice of celebrated historical and contemporary figures, research and written by the author and Michael Horowitz. There is a Prologue and Epilogue followed by Notes in small print, followed by a double-page chart showing Leary’s 1970 prison escape. The book generated controversy before it was published because of threatened legal suits, including one by the CIA; certain names and affiliations had to be deleted, resulting in a several-months delay in pbulication.” (An Annotated Bibliography of Timothy Leary, A25a) This copy inscribed by Leary to Australian occult author Neville Drury, “on a sunny day in Sydney”, and with a 1995 Sydney Morning Herald article on Leary preparing for death laid in.
