From the library of Spydeee Gasmantell, with his signature on prelims.First published by the Auerhahn Press in 1960, this is the second edition of The Exterminator, with different colours on covers, and a slightly larger format.

An early & very important collaboration between WSB & Gysin, both contribute texts & Gysin provides calligraphic illustrations, including on the covers. “The effect is like being turned loose in someones unconscious; the manifestations are various but they all carry the quality of one man. Brion Gysin contributed the poems and calligraphies which finally "rub out the word.”
