New York: (1978-1982). First Edition. First 16 issues large 8vo. printed stapled self-wrappers. Final volume, 8vo. perfect bound printed stuff wraps. Offset printed. Generally very good overall.

Arguably the most important document to emerge from the L=A=N=G=U=A=G=E movement, Andrews and Bernstein's journal published some 16 issues (13 issues proper, plus various supplements, as well as a final volume issued as OPEN LETTER, Fifth Series No, 1) from 1978 through 1982. With its austere production and design (by Bernstein's wife Susan Laufer/Bee), in many ways the clearest expression of the aesthetic and the moment the movement fully matured. Contributors include: Lyn Hejinian, Ray DiPalma, Larry Eigner, Bob Perelman, Ron Silliman, Kathy Acker, Rae Armantrout, Jackson Mac Low, Bernadette Mayer, Rosemary Waldrop, Douglas Messerli, Dick Higgins, Clark Coolidge, Jerome Rothenberg, Barrett Watten, Susan Howe, among many others. With fewer than 200 copies printed for each of the earliest issues, complete runs are quite uncommon, especially with subscriber ephemera. [Clay and Phillips 235].
