Hello Richard,
Perhaps you already know this, but UBUWEB has just released issues 1, 2 and 3 of Dada Magazine as downloadable PDFs:

Attempting to promulgate Dada ideas throughout Europe, Tristan Tzara
launched the art and literature review Dada. Appearing in July 1917,
the first issue of Dada, subtitled Miscellany of Art and Literature,
featured contributions from members of avant-garde groups throughout
Europe, including Giorgio de Chirico, Robert Delaunay, and Wassily
Kandinsky. Marking the magazine's debut, Tzara wrote in the Zurich
Chronicle, "Mysterious creation! Magic Revolver! The Dada Movement is
Launched." Issue 2 appeared in December of 1918. Issue number 3
violated all the rules and conventions in typography and layout and
undermined established notions of order and logic. Printed in newspaper
format in both French and German editions, it embodies Dada's
celebration of nonsense and chaos with an explosive mixture of
manifestos, poetry, and advertisements - all typeset in randomly
ordered lettering. Included is Tzara's "Dada Manifesto of 1918," which
was read at Meise Hall in Zurich on July 23, 1918, and is perhaps the
most important of the Dadaist manifestos. See also Helmut Herbst's film
Deutschland Dada (1969), Hans Richter's films and Tristan Tzara's sound
poems in UbuWeb Sound which is strewn with historical and rare
recordings from dozens of Dadaists.
