SIGNED by Ted Berrigan on the title page with a note regarding his contribution. The fifth and final issue of this scarce literary magazine, started in 1959 by several high-school students in Tulsa who went on to become important, nationally recognized poets and artists. This issue includes contributions from Ted Berrigan, Jack Anderson, David Omer Bearden, Richard Dokey, Richard Gallup, Joe Brainard, Carl Larsen, c.cleburne culin, LeRoi Jones, Dan Teis, Gilbert Sorrentino, Martin Edward Cochran, Robert Creeley (misspelled here as Creely), and Ron Padgett. Joe Brainard drew the striking cover illustration (as well as other illustrations in the magazine). A charming aspect of this volume: the hand-drawn advertisements in the back, including one for the Lewis Meyer Book Store in Tulsa, where Ron Padgett worked. There's also one for Yugen, a poetry magazine founded by LeRoi Jones (who later became Amiri Baraka). Jones contributed a poem to this issue of the White Dove Review.
