New York: Lorenz Gude/Ted Berrigan, 1966. First edition. 31 pp. Side-stapled tall (legal-sized) mimeographed wrappers. Slight toning to extremities, last leaf detached from two of three staples. Much better than usually seen.
One of the most important mimeo magazines of the 1960s, and a crucial link between the first and second generations of the New York School poets. Richard Hell called C "the greatest literary magazine of the twentieth century... you could extrapolate everything worthwhile in the universe from its thirteen issues, and you'd have a great time, giggling." Originally a vehicle for the Tulsa core of Berrigan, Ron Padgett, Dick Gallup and Joe Brainard, this issue includes contributions by Stephane Mallarme, Pierre Reverdy, William Saroyan, Harry Mathews, Kenward Elmslie and others. Cover by Joe Brainard. Clay & Phillips, pp. 160-65. Item #2339
