Original 1st printing 12&1/2 x 20" cardboard boxing-style concert poster for "LSD: Dr. J. Lettvin vs. Dr. T. Leary", a one-hour videotaped debate between Timothy Leary and M.I.T. professor Jerome Lettvin, held at Little Hall on the campus of the University of Maine in Orono, ME on 1/4 and 1/7/1968.
Designer unknown/not credited, extra-thick cardboard stock letterpress poster is in decent/used (B/B- to B-) condition; there is a bit of pen scratch in the upper right margin ("49200021" in blue ballpoint) and between "Dr." and "Dr." ("942-00 22" in blue ballpoint), along with a moderate to heavy amount of moisture wear (numerous water marks/stains), a bit of edge/corner creasing, numerous staple holes along the top margin, a few thin stress bends here and there... definitely a bit on the used side, most likely from being displayed outdoors in northern New England over the winter season.
Conditional issues aside, still a pretty cool little oddball Leary-related piece from a fairly out-of-the-way locale.
