      The Black Dwarf issues here (seventeen of them) are all I have so far. I would love to see others and if you know of anyone who may have copies, please let me know. Rob

    Is there any chance you could find a copy of the “Don’t Demand, Occupy” issue, or the one that includes Mick Jagger’s handwritten lyrics to “Street Fighting Man?” I think they’re from late October ’68…

    Rob are the copies of The Week you have scanned the only ones you have or do you have others that you still have to scan?

    Rob, I have a load of old Red Moles and Black Dwarfs dating from the late 60s and early 70s. I could send them to you if you think they’d be of any interest.
