New York: Lorenz Gude, 1963. First edition. Foolscap format, mimeographed on rectos only; stab-stapled. With single word holograph addition"and" in pencil to Ted Berrigan's poem "Sonnet XXXVI".
Early number of the little magazine, which was of of primary importance to the formation of the second New York School. Early issues are increasingly uncommon. This issue includes contributions from Berrigan and Sandy Alper, J. Richard White, Ron Padgett, and Joe Brainard.
Soiled, with a grease spot to cover. One page missing (Berrigan's Penn Station), and final two pages detached. A poor example, but the first couple of issues of C are often lacking leaves due to the fragile construction, or erratic collation. Item #20316
