Oakland: ). Black Panther Party, Publisher. Unbound. Fair. Item #019228
Oakland, no date, presumed circa 1970s, maybe early 1980s, based on provenance. Single sheet, 17 by 11 inches, folded in half to make two 8 ½ by 11 inch pages. Printed on single sides only. Black Panther logo at the upper left of the first page, with a small photo of Bobby Hutton at the upper right. A photomechanically reproduced REPRINT of the rules of the Black Panther Party, a list of ten that all party members were to abide by. Blank lines at the end where the heads of the central committee were supposed to sign. It appears this was issued by the Central Headquarters, Emeryville Branch, Oakland, California. Listed along the left side are the members of the Central Committee, including Huey Newton, Bobby Seale, Eldridge Cleaver, David Hilliard, George Murray, Melvin Newton, James Forman, H. Rap Brown, Stokely Carmichael, Kathleen Cleaver and Emory Douglas. NOTE: this is a reprint of what was perhaps the original (which was offset printed, and which we had to compare at one point). The original and this came from the same collection, and based on the provenance it is possible this was reproduced by the owner in the 1970s for distribution or for reference. FAIR condition. Several mostly vertical fold creases present, with other wrinkling and creasing. General minor toning. Several tears along the fold creases, with the extremities worn. Second page with several largish brown stains. Placeholder or reference copy only. REPRINT.
