Adventures Of Jesus #nn - Second and Third printings (Gilbert Shelton, 1963-78). If you missed out on the First Edition of Adventures of Jesus, which sold in our November Signature Auction for a record price of $10,925, here is an opportunity to acquire the next best thing. These mimeographed papers represent the earliest efforts of Underground pioneer Frank Stack (aka Foolbert Sturgeon), and were some of the same cartoons subsequently printed in Gilbert Shelton's The Austin Iconoclastic Newsletter. These early editions were only passed out to friends and fellow students. Each printing consists of seven single-sided pages which measure 8.5" x 11". In addition to the Second printing (done in 1963), this lot also includes two copies of the subsequent 1978 printing. Jay Kennedy refers to the 1978 printings as "Facsimile Editions." Also included is a very sharp VG/FN copy of The Austin Iconoclastic Newsletter, which is extremely bright and colorful. All of these pieces were stored together for decades in Playboy Editor William Helmer's footlocker. This lot includes extensive documentation as to the authenticity of the pieces, including correspondence between William Helmer and Gilbert Shelton. This is where it all started. Behold!
