London, England: Love Books / Barry Miles, 1965. First Edition. Softcover. Signed by Charles Plymell. Long Hair Number 1 was published in 1965 by Love Books in London by Barry Miles, manager of the Indica Bookshop & Gallery in London & later bibliographer & biographer of William S. Burroughs. This quintessential counterculture publication contains contributions from a panoply of notable Beat & New York poets. As the title portends, "Long Hair" was one of the first mimeographed literary magazines to explicate the transition that was taking place from the 1st Generation of Beats (and their Mimeo-Rev progeny) to the acid-washed Hippie movement which would soon succeed them. Contributors of poetry & prose to this 81-page periodical are Allen Ginsberg (first appearance of his long poem, Ankor-Wat), Ted Berrigan, Ron Padgett, Gerard Malanga, Fugs member Tuli Kupferberg, Jeff Nuttall, (publisher of the "My Own Mag" series with many contributions by WSB), Lawrence Ferlinghetti, Allen de Loach (who also published WSB in issue of his Intrepid series) avant garde jazz musician Archie Shepp, Jack Micheline & legendary literary outlaw Charles Plymell - poet, publisher, printer and onetime roommate of Neal Cassady in San Francisco. Plymell has hand-signed his name on the contents page next to his reference to his contribution. A quintessential counterculture collectible. In near fine condition, with only mild rubbing, spotting & browning to front, back covers & spine; creasing, chipping, closed separations at front top & bottom edges of spine; minor crease-bumps of corners; spotting & browning of lower edge. Interior very fine except for mild crease-waves through lower corners of most pages. Near Fine. [Item #4407]
