Fifth issue of John Kelly's small press poetry magazine, "t]he quintessential 'Beat' publication..." (Clay & Phillips 81) and one of the defining publications of the early mimeo revolution. Contributors to this issue include Spicer, Ginsberg, Orlovsky, Bob Kaufman, and others. All issues of BEATITUDE's original run (it ceased publication in the early 1960s, but resumed in the late) are now rare.
