New York, NY: Roy Weinberger/ Winepress, 1967. First Printing. Softcover. Signed by Diane Wakoski. This vintage, very first number of the literary journal edited by Roy Weinberger features two early poems by Diane Wakoski (here named Diane Wakoski-Sherbell), the acclaimed & prolific poet influenced by the Beat Generation & then-associated with the Deep Image School, who has long resided here in Michigan. Below the first poem, "Summer," just under her printed name, Wakoski has hand-written her signature with characteristic series of vertical doodles (pg. 12). Also in this inaugural issue are contributions of poetry & prose by Robert Bosworth, Mildred B. Cavallo, Patricia Ellsworth, Barbara A. Holland, Paul Johnson (unrelated to the acclaimed British historian) & many more. With notes on contributors. A milestone literary rarity; & a most important Wakoski collectible with her signature. In fine condition with only mild rubbing, browning, spotting & occasional light creasing to front, back covers & spine; mild wear & a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of same; mild rubbing, browning & spotting to edges of text block. Interior very fine with only staples (which bind pages, not covers & spine) in process of rusting with minimal bleeding onto inner front cover & first page; miniscule bumps at upper corners of thick, tumbled-stock page leaves.
