OZ #1-48 (London: Oz Publications Ink Ltd., January 1967-November 1973) - all published.

Felix Dennis's set, featuring most of the major inserts, three proofs, and colour variants of three issues. The set was one of two full sets owned by Felix Dennis (the other was acquired by the V&A Museum as part of The Felix Dennis Oz Archive), and originally came from the Oz editorial office in London. It was later kept at his estate in Dorsington, Warwickshire.

Dennis was famously given a job street-selling Oz in 1967 after sending Richard Neville a tape recording in which he expounded on the magazine's shortcomings, part of which was broadcast in a BBC documentary. His success, which occasionally involved hiring girls in short skirts to sell copies on the King's Road ("like a sort of hippie pimp"), led to Neville putting him in charge of advertising sales, followed later by occasional design work and eventually editorship of Oz, the genesis of his subsequent magazine-publishing empire (Dennis later credited the magazine with teaching him how to be an entrepreneur).

London Oz was launched in early 1967 by Richard Neville, with Martin Sharp as graphic designer. It was edited by Neville, later by Jim Anderson and Felix Dennis (guest editors included John Wilcock, Germaine Greer, Paul Lawson, Andrew Fisher, and Jonathon Green). The art direction was initially by Martin Sharp, later by Jon Goodchild, Philippe von Mora, Felix Dennis, David Wills, Richard Adams, Pearce Marchbank, Barney Bubbles and others, with photography by Bob Whitaker, Keith Morris and Steve Dwoskin. It was known as London Oz up to and including issue #19 (March 1969), and thereafter simply as Oz (the name derived from the monthly satirical magazine founded in Sydney by Richard Neville and Richard Walsh in 1963). Formats, pagination and sizes vary.

Aside from numerous UPS/LNS syndicated features, the contributors include: Colin MacInnes; David Widgery; Polly Toynbee; Robert Hughes; Simon Watson-Taylor; Anthony Haden-Guest; Jean-Jacques Lebel; Angelo Quattrocchi; Joseph Berke; Neal Ascherson; Caroline Coon; Bill Levy; Jim Haynes; Hoppy; Miles; Nick Kent; Dick Pountain; Bob Harris; Albie Thoms; Steve Abrams; Kate Millett; Michael Abdul Malik; Heathcote Williams; Charles Shaar Murray; and Mick Farren. Artists who contributed work include the art directors listed above, along with Mike McInnerney; Hapshash and the Coloured Coat; John Hurford; Ed Barker; Peter Till; Adrian George; Rod Beddall; Andrzej Dudzinski; Peter Brookes; Malcolm Livingstone; William Stok; and William Rankin (the work of American underground artists Robert Crumb, S. Clay Wilson, John Thompson and Greg Irons also appeared regularly, and issue #27 featured work by Wallace Berman). Interviews exclusive to Oz (as distinct from those syndicated by UPS), include John Peel; Dick Gregory; Tuli Kupferberg; Mike Ratledge; Norman Zinberg; Wavy Gravy; Jimmy Page; Frank Zappa; Marsha Hunt; Arthur Lee; Anäis Nin; Judith Malina; and Timothy Leary. The lively letters pages included correspondence from figures as diverse as John Calder, Clive James, Neil Megson (Genesis P-Orridge), Jay Landesman, Craig Sams, and Abbie Hoffman.

Condition ranges from Very Good to Near Fine. The fifth issue (pink variant of the 'Please Plant a Flower Child' poster) is folded into A4 size; the front cover of #10 is slightly stained; the last page of #11 (red variant) has stuck to the gummed inside cover; issue #23 has a short tear to the back cover; and the back cover of #31 is damaged.

The inserts included are: i) Oz Sheet No.1 (#4); ii) Che Geuvara [sic] poster (#8); lacks the rare 'Yoko Ono at the Saville' flyer, but a facsimile of the colour variant is supplied; iii) Outcry! People's Park poster + Running Man Book News booklet (#21); iv) Honeybunch Kaminski poster (#24); v) Print Mint posters leaflet (#26); vi) Jimi Hendrix/Oz News poster (#30); vii) Janis Joplin/Oz Old Bailey Trial poster (#36); viii) subscription form/ad. for Wembley Rock'n'Roll show, still attached to staple (#43). In addition, cover variants of issues #30 (both with Hendrix poster inserts), #31 and #35 are included, as well as proof sheets for issues #9 and #47, and a proof cover for issue #34.

A unique set of this legendary countercultural publication, previously owned by one of its editors and prime movers, and accompanied by a signed letter of provenance from Barry Miles, the representative of the Felix Dennis Estate.
