Rare Black "Book of the Dead"
1972 Tour Program

This is the ultra-rare "Black Book" of the Dead. So-called because of the all-black cover. It was given away free at the Lyceum (London, England) shows in May 1972 during the Europe '72 tour.

A 32-page book/program about the Grateful Dead and their music. Produced in conjunction with the European tour in 1972. Includes a page listing the band and crew members for the tour, a history of the band, a two-page biography of each band member, information about the Europe tour, and a couple of adverts. At the foot of the inside front cover is the statement:


"Book Of The Dead first published Lyceum Ballroom 23rd May 1972 at the first of four concerts presented by Jumpin' Jack .... but the book remains timeless and free.
The front and back covers are black - hence images of some of the pages are shown here."
