Handbill proclaiming: ''Emmett Grogan is Back! so what [signed] the diggers.''

[SF: Communication Company, 1967].

Item #SKB-15436

4to. Broadside. First edition. Emmett Grogan was the "leader" of the Diggers and his philosophy of "everything for free," his guidance of the hippies in the Haight, and his avoidance of celebrity culture made him one of the most intriguing and influential counterculture figures during this period. This "so what" handbill admonishes the community to not take him too seriously. Three-hole-punch to left edge, couple of small soft corner creases, else very near fine. (The Diggers "liberated" whatever paper they could and in several instances, as can be seen in Notes from a Revolution: Com/Co, the Diggers & the Haight, they used paper with holes punched to the top or sides to produce their handbills.) One of the scarcest Diggers handbills.

Price: $450.00
