THE EAST VILLAGE OTHER. A collection of 14 early issues, including the premiere issue: Volume 1, #1, #4-9, #11, #16-17, #21-24 (NY: October 1965-November 1966).

Tabloid newspaper format (first issue broadsheet folded into tabloid size). Pagination varies. Initially monthly, fortnightly from issue #5. Pub./ed. Walter Bowart; editors Allen (spelled Allan) Katzman, Sherry Needham, Dan Rattiner, and (from #4) John Wilcock. Contributors include Ishmael Reed, Bill Beckman, Lil Picard, Peter Leggieri, along with the editors and many others.

The East Village Other was founded in 1965 by Walter Bowart, together with Needham, Katzman, Rattiner, and Reed, the latter naming the paper (or possibly Ted Berrigan, accounts vary). The 'Other' derived from Carl Jung's reference to Milton's Satan as the 'Other', or possibly, accounts vary again, Rimbaud's line of 1871, "Je est un autre". Its first issue proclaimed "We hope to become the mirror of opinion of the new citizenry of the East Village", a reference to the newly-arrived artists and bohemians excluded from the high-priced Greenwich Village. Despite the paper's conventional layout, these early issues clearly look to the future, embracing the new artistic, musical and cultural trends exemplified by Andy Warhol, The Velvet Underground, The Fugs, and the artists, poets and experimental filmmakers who lived and worked in the same milieu as the paper's storefront office, located on Avenue A near Tompkins Square Park.
