Amidst the walls of City Lights books signed by Allen Ginsberg, Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Diane di Prima and the angel-headed hipsters of the North Beach scene, there were also Psychedelic and Hippie tomes.
One, Lisa Law's "Flashing On The 60s", contained this pic, on a page signed by author and counterculture icon Ken Kesey:
The book sold for $108. I didn't bid on it, but, I must admit, mostly because I didn't see the Kesey inscription until AFTER the bidding on that item had ended.
There were other items of interest, too, but mostly the experience was fun just to see a room full of bookshelves that look a lot like mine:
My friend came away with a rare vinyl bootleg of one of the Acid Tests and a signed copy of Timothy Leary's "The Game of Life."
The auctioneers handled the day with grace, even as they laughed aloud reading Lot #89 Horseshit: The Offensive Review - Nos. 1 - 4 or closed off bids with statements like "$100 for The Hippies."
