Scanlan's Monthly (Complete Run, Issues 1-8)

New York and St. Jean, Quebec: Scanlan's Literary House, 1970-1971.

Complete run of seven issues plus the final, rare "Suppressed Issue" produced in Canada. A Fine, bright and clean set; really excellent shape. No subscriber labels. Slight rusting to staple of final issue, light wear.

Scanlan's was a counterculture magazine that broke down nearly as many boundaries as its predecessor, Ramparts, during its short existence. It launched "gonzo journalism" with the article "The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved" by Hunter S. Thompson, illustrated by Ralph Steadman, in its June 1970 issue-- that's the one with Nixon's face being punched into oblivion. This copy of that particular issue is excellent: bright white wraps with no foxing. The set also features work by R. Crumb, Alfred McCoy (author of The Politics of Heroin), JFK investigator Jim Garrison's cohort William Turner, and Robert Altman well as other Thompson (AKA Raoul Duke) and Steadman work.
