The rare Free edition of the Diggers' final collective publication, issued in August of 1968. " Emmett made a deal with Paul Krassner to print 40,000 copies for the Diggers' Free edition, in exchange for using the inside and back cover for Issue No. 81 of The Realist. Thus there were two editions of The Digger Papers. To this day, both are in rare supply, although the Free edition is highly sought after by collectors" (The Digger Archives).

Includes a combination of new pieces and classic one, such as "The Post-Competitive, Comparative Game of a Free City" ("the summation of the Digger/Free City philosophy" (Digger Archives)), and the Digger manifesto, "Trip Without A Ticket".
