Allen Cohen (1940-2004), the editor during the paper's most vibrant period, and Michael Bowen, the art director, were among the founders of the publication. Ron and Jay Thelin, owners of The Psychedelic Shop at 1535 Haight Street, were the financial backers and sometime managing editors of the periodical. The Psychedelic experience was meant to generate peace, love, and good vibrations; the paper did not reflect this, so all involved kept debating and offering ideas until, by issue #4 when Allen Cohen and art director Gabe Katz took hold of the creative reins, the Oracle started to become the voice of the community. The dynamic color covers began with Number 6, and the different printings may be identified by the variation in the colors. A complete run of this influential underground newspaper, such as this, with the variant printings, is very rare, and possibly unique to the market. Condition: Some minor darkening and wear to the paper, as is common, but very good or better; a rare run of this significant and influential underground newspaper. Provenance: The Psychedelic Shop on Haight Street. Estimate $1,000 - $2,000.

Condition: Touches of minor wear & creasing along edges; overall near fine. Estimate $700 - $900.
