Page 42 has a iconic 7 x 6 inch illustrated advertisement for: "Planet of the Apes" for it's World premiere at the Capital Theater in Manhattan. wikipedia notes: Planet of the Apes premiered on February 8, 1968, at the Capitol Theatre in New York City, and was released in the United States on April 3, by 20th Century-Fox. This ad is for that very first showing of this iconic film.
"The Jimi Hendrix Experience" worldwide tour is considered among many to be one of the greatest tours of all time. This iconic newspaper from Greenwich Village contains an ad for his upcoming performance at Hunter College, and another large ad for the album. (pages 30 & 31) I suspect this to be an extremely rare item because their was really no reason to save it at the time.
It is worth noting that "The Village Voice" was an American news and culture paper, known for being the country's first alternative newsweekly. Founded in 1955, the Voice began as a platform for the creative community of New York City.
Complete in 56 pages, tabloid-size, one crease across the center, very nice condition.
