Ram Dass' "seed pod of a book" whose contents are meant to be disbursed, hence the perforated white cardstock pages with images in the second half of the book. The book was issued with a large 51" x 51" poster as the "gameboard" (not present here, and exceedingly rare as it is not often still found with the book). There are notes for possible uses of the cards that can be removed from the book. The instructions "are for inspiration not limitation." All cards are present and still bound into the book. From Ram Dass' introduction: "Our only purpose in making SEED is to help serve in some way in the awakening of consciousness and the ending of suffering for all beings everywhere."
The first half of the book is printed with green ink on brown kraft paper, similar to early editions of Be Here Now. Condition is always an issue with this title as the cardstock pages are often loose or missing, with cracking to spine, as the glue used for binding was not adequate for the weight of the pages. Rare, and in relatively nice condition considering all pages are present and attached. Item #1635.
Condition: Good for this title, reader's creases to spine with crack starting; some scuffing and edgewear to covers; one .5" divot or scratch to front cover; back cover corner creasing with creasing visible on the last several pages; priced accordingly; now in a custom-made protective mylar jacket.
