Original 1st printing 5&1/2 x 8&1/2" double-sided event handbill for a performance of (beat poet) Michael McClure's one-act play, "The Beard", held at the Fillmore Auditorium in San Francisco, CA on 7/24/1966.
Art by Wes Wilson, image is # 19 in the Bill Graham/Fillmore series (OHB-A in the Eric King Guide).
Thin flat stock handbill is in good to very good (B to B/B+) condition; there are a trio of flattened horizontal folds, along with a light to moderate amount of handling wear, a few light surface scuffs and pin-prick spots here and there, a tiny stress bend or two hiding within the image area and a couple of light surface indentations in the lower right corner, otherwise fine.
Most of the condition issues are fairly negligible from a presentation point of view, it's a pretty nice-looking example overall. These usually don't come cheap, this one is relatively reasonable.
