Official promoter-issued (1966/67) 2nd printing 14&3/8 x 20" concert poster for the Grateful Dead appearing with the Oxford Circle at the Avalon Ballroom in San Francisco, CA from 9/16-17/1966.
 Art by Alton Kelley and Stanley Mouse (central image by Edmund Sullivan), image ("Skeleton & Roses") is # 26 in the Family Dog/Avalon series.
 Medium flat vellum stock poster has been partially restored to good/decent (B to B/B-) condition; all four corners have had reinforcement/pin hole fills and there were large tears in the left/center and bottom center margins that were professionally sealed; beyond that, there remain a series of brown tape marks scattered around the outer margin and a couple of other relatively minor issues here and there, but the central image area still looks pretty good- virtually all of the conditional issues are confined to the outer margins.

 The 2nd printing edition of the FD 26 has been increasingly difficult to come by in recent years, this is a very presentable example.
