This lot is closed for bidding. Bidding ended on:
One of the best of the early Undergrounds was Bijou Funnies (containing work by Crumb, Williamson, Lynch and Kinney). This first edition from 1968 is referred to as the "overlap edition." It is so named for the simple fact that, like the earlier pulps, the assembled covers and interiors were never trimmed down. The cover overhangs the white interior pages by almost three-quarters of an inch. Because of this, when you are lucky enough to find one, it always shows pronounced effects. Since this is a Don Donahue file copy (and we grade it Fine in condition), we have to believe that Very Fine or better copies probably don't exist. The odds are that they never did. This problem was corrected by Donahue with the printing for the second edition.
