    The Life and Loves of Cleopatra #nn, Second Printing, Fred Todd File Copy (Apex Novelties, 1969) Condition: VF. A second printing of one of the rarest of the early undergrounds. The first printing of this book was a giveaway at "The Diggers" free store in San Francisco in 1967. In 1969, Apex Novelties reprinted it and Rip Off Press distributed it. These books were completely printed on newsprint paper and as a result, copies just don't exist with white pages. As a matter of fact, that is one way to tell the third prints from the second prints, the thirds were printed on better paper and have white pages. The only thing keeping this rare Underground from grading even higher is a small stain on the bottom left of the cover. From the collection of Rip Off Press owner Fred Todd.
