In 1991 I edited a complete reproduction of the San Francisco Oracle called
The San Francisco Oracle Facsimilie Edition published by Regent Press,
8020A Adeline, OAkland, CA, 510-547-7602, Fax 5105476357. It includes an
extensive introduction that I wrote and every page of the original Oracle
as close to the originals as possible. I think you will find this to be an
original source anthology of the hippie culture.
