Paterson, N.J. Science Fiction Advancement Association, December 1937 (volume 3, number 2). Octavo, single issue, hectographed, printed wrappers, stapled. Includes "'Degeneration:' A Note on Stanton A. Coblentz," an article by Peter Duncan, "Development of Stf from its Beginning up to 1946 [sic]" an article by Roy A. Squires, and other material. "TESSERACT proved to be the biggest feather in the SFAA's cap. In excellence and general interest the club organ surpassed almost every similar publication then extant. It was far superior to THE INTERNATIONAL OBSERVER and THE SCIENCE FICTION CRITIC, and virtually the only magazines that ranked above it were the fine printed journals." - Moskowitz, The Immortal Storm, pp. 63-8. Van Houten's editorial states that only 36 copies of this issue were mailed (to subscribers only). Publication was suspended after two more issues of the magazine, the last dated March 1938. Pavlat and Evans, Fanzine Index, p. 121. Pulp paper tanned, vertical closed tear in one leaf, a very good copy of this fragile production. Quite scarce. (#110542).
