      I just recently bought the "The Original Scroll" version of this... haven't dived in yet, though.

      thanks for posting this, do you have the other 37 metres of it? I graduated with honors because of Kerouac, ... some legacy .....

      I came back to say that having now read all the comments, I am impressed by the "cool" level of literary knowledge expressed in the group, and I guess I should google or try to find a copy of "The First Third,"

      re Kerouac's changing the sentence to fit the mistakes, I used to do this in college, too, and it made writing papers much more challenging, I think I had started doing it with hand-written essays, I was a painfully slow left-handed writer and something of an insouciant typist without the regard needed for letter perfect accuracy,

      Those still interested in the mechanics of typing might want to to post some of their thoughts in the one of the excellent typewriter groups on flickr ......... specially, creativity and personal experience,

      Thirty-three months ago you posted this and I'm finally reading "The Original Scroll" version of the book. I've actually still not read any of the actual novel as there are over a hundred pages of introduction/commentary/exegesis... but soon.
