The San Francisco Oracle Facsimile Edition.
COHEN, Allen (ed.).
Berkeley: Regent Press, 1991.
Folio. Hardbound in cloth-covered boards, issued without dust jacket. First edition of this lavish facsimile reprint of every issue of The San Francisco Oracle. Presentation copy inscribed from famed music producer Danny Goldberg and his wife, Rosemary Carroll (formerly wife of Jim Carroll), to noted philanthropist and political organizer, Margery Tabankin (who heads foundations for both Barbra Streisand and Steven Spielberg): "Dear Margie, / While you were being political / some of the rest of us were / waxing cosmic. / With our love to / draw us even closer in the / nineties. / Happy Birthday / Love, / Danny Goldberg / Rosemary Carroll." A true presentation copy (a gift) and a nice association that evokes the hippie vs. politico split that divided the '60s counterculture into different factions. Bump to one corner, minor tap to another, else fine.
