International times. IT. Numbers 1-15 plus 17, 1966-1967, Number 10 in photocopy

London, 1966-1967. The early issues of an influential underground newspaper, brimming over with satire and transgression. All copies except No. 10 are in original, unbound state, and all are flat, except No. 17, which is folded once. All are illustrated. Sizes: Numbers 1-9, about 42 x 31 cm (16-3/4 x 12-1/2 inches); Numbers 11 & 12, 38 x 25.5 cm (13 x 10 inches); Numbers 13-15 & 17, 44.5 x 29 cm (15-1/2 x 11-1/2 inches). No. 10 is a high-quality photocopy of this exceedingly rare issue, nearly all of which was seized and destroyed by the police. It is slightly reduced in size: 16-3/4 x 12-1/2 inches to 17 x 11 inches, 16 pages printed both sides on 8 separate leaves. Generally excellent condition, considering the 40-year-old newsprint on which most of the original issues are printed. The lower left corner of No. 15 is torn off about 3/4 inch with no loss of text. **This run includes: No. 1, 10/14-27/1966; No. 2, 10/31-11/13/1966 (Ezra Pound broadcast); No. 3, 11/14-27/1966 (Burroughs, Morton Feldman); No. 4, 11/28-12/11/1966 (Dick Gregory, Alexander Trocchi); No. 5, 12/12-25/1966 (Claes Oldenburg); No. 6, 1/16-29/1967 (Paul McCartney, Mailer, Burroughs); No. 7, 1/30-2/16/1967 (Ginsberg address); No. 8, 2/13-26/1967 (Pete Townshend, Ginsberg, Snyder); No. 9, 2/27-3/12/1967; No. 10 in photocopy, 3/13-26/1967 (Frank Zappa and a report by Tom McGrath on a police raid of the IT offices the previous week); No. 11, 4/21-28/1967; No. [12], 4/28-5/12/1967 (color cover and color cut-up by Brion Gysin); No. 13, 5/19-6/2/1967; No. 14, Fri. 6/2/1967 (Warhol); No. 15, Fri. 6/16/1967; 17, 7/28-8/13/1967 (Yoko Ono).
