Original 1st printing 4&7/8 x 8&5/8" blank-reverse concert handbill for the 13th Floor Elevators* appearing with the Great Society (featuring Grace Slick, Friday Only) and Sopwith Camel (Saturday only) at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA from 8/26-27/1966. (*Elevators allegedly canceled, replaced by Country Joe & the Fish (Saturday) and Quicksilver Messenger Service (Friday)- this is still debated by various sources)
Art by Wes Wilson (Grace Slick photo by Herb Greene), image is # 25 in the Bill Graham/Fillmore series. (BG-25-OHB-A in the Eric King guide)
Thin flat vellum stock full-color handbill (first one in the series) is in excellent (B+) condition; there is a very soft diagonal bend in the upper left margin (above "Bill"), along with a tiny spot in the top center margin, a nearly-invisible vertical drip spot just beneath the "u" of "Auditorium" and a pair of tape shadows/soft age spots on the reverse side, otherwise it is a BEAUTIFUL example of this iconic 1966 Fillmore handbill.
