BACHMAN, Sally and others. People’s Park…..

(Berkeley, CA): No printing details, (possibly Cody’s Books), no date (1969).   First edition.  Quarto.  [16 pages].  Scarce publication about the “Bloody Thursday” riot over the embattled park on May 15, 1969. Borne out of protest against the University’ of California’s plans to turn the park into an athletic field, the clash between demonstrators and police left one person dead and dozens injured, and prompted then-governor Ronald Reagan to declare a state of emergency in Berkeley.  Illustrated throughout with photographic plates.  The publication lists John Fante as one of the contributors.  A very good copy, scarce.
