Classic February 2008
This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
Published in 1957, Jack Kerouac's second novel, On The Road, spoke to a new generation of readers and forever immortalized him as the voice of the "Beat Generation." Offered is a pair of Montgomery Ward "Powr House 101" blue jeans once owned and worn by the iconic beatnik. The garment is well-kept, though half of the brand name tag sewn above the rear right pocket is missing. Kerouac passed away in 1969. Accompanying as provenance is an LOA signed by the brother of Kerouac's third wife.
