It was printed in San Francisco in February, 1968 (the "November 1967" date inside the comic is actually when Crumb finished the art) on Charley Plymell's old pre-WWII offset press, run by Don Donahue -- while Charley was hosting naked parties in the next room! Don, along with Robert's then-wife Dana, notoriously sold copies of the comic out of an old baby buggy in the Haight-Ashbury district. Robert Crumb stories, cover, and art. Fogel's Underground Comix Price Guide Supplement NM- 9.2 value = $10,000. CGC census 1/15: 9 in 9.0, 23 higher.
