Here's an original/first print poster from The Ark in Sausalito. It was used to promote A Benefit To Help A Tribal Member (Mystic Research Foundation) Grope For Peace. This event was presented by the Northern California Psychedelic Cattlemens Association (this was the original Family Dog, minus Chet Helms), took place December 26, 1966, and featured the Charlatans, Big Brother & The Holding Co., Final Solution, Lynne Hughes & Congress of Wonders. This compelling image was designed by Stanley Mouse, and is featured in "The Art Of Rock", plate 2.130.

This poster measures 12 1/8" x 17", and remains in very good condition, with a small area of discoloration in the top right margin and lower left margin (there are some light tape stains/pulls on the back, but they do not affect the front). The poster would frame out beautifully, and has been hand signed in pencil in the lower right corner by Mouse. Historically, these have been pretty hard to come by....doubt many were printed. Please call Jim at 1-800-575-1967 with any specific questions.
