Item #SKB-17696

First printing of one of Griffin's first and most historically important posters. Signed by Allen Ginsberg who was at the Human Be-in. The poster features an illustration of an American Indian with an electric guitar on horseback along with the text: "Pow Wow. A Gathering of the Tribes for a Human Be-In." Lists Allen Ginsberg, Timothy Leary, Gary Snyder, Jerry Rubin, Richard Alpert, and others as participants. The Be-In took place in Golden Gate Park in 1967---a watershed event that linked the Beat and '60s countercultures, and catapulted the Haight-Ashbury hippie scene into national prominence. Some creasing and wear, paper toned, few 1-inch edge tears, some sepia staining on back (not visible on front), a good only copy. However, rare signed by Ginsberg who was such an important presence at the event and his name is featured on the poster. Would look quite acceptable framed since most of the blemishes are on the edges and could be matted out.

Price: $400.00
