The Dead Book: A Social History of the Haight-Ashbury Experience (Vol. 1 of a Trilogy) by Hank Harrison.  The Archives Press, Menlo Park, California (U.S.A.), 1985.  Stated First Edition/Limited Edition.  (First Thus).  ISBN 0918501075.  225p.  8.50×0.60×10.70.  Cream-colored paper wrappers with artist Glenn Chase’s finely rendered black illustration and illuminated letters on the front cover.  Perfect-bound COLLECTIBLE softcover in GOOD condition.  Well-used copy with clean interior pages.  Heavy wear to spine back, covers, edges, and corners – wear includes tiny splits to crown wrapper joints of front and rear covers, spine back paper is just starting to peel at one end.  Also shows stains, discoloration and glue residue.  Overall, a good, sound copy of a Scarce Collectible book.

The First Edition of this cult classic was compromised by censors and marketing professionals.  So it was revised.  This 1985 Revised Edition is less about the Grateful Dead’s music, and more a social commentary about their place in. the Haight Ashbury counterculture movement, and is much closer to what the author intended for the book.  It is packed with b&w pictures of celebrities and accounts of their experiences with the Dead.  It is a highly readable book about a significant time in American history.
