(#117137) THE. September 1936 . PHANTAGRAPH, Donald A. Wollheim, number 6 volume 4.

New York: Shepherd and Wollheim, September 1936 (volume 4, number 6). Small octavo, single issue, printed from typeset copy, self wrappers, stapled. A legendary amateur magazine of the 1930s. Contributions by Donald A. Wollheim (his "Sun-Spots" column), article by H. C. Koenig, "Dark Garden (For Clark Ashton Smith)," a poem by Richard Ely Morse, and the anonymous "What's Wrong With Weird Fiction." "Encouraged by the excellent material being received from Smith, Lovecraft and others, Wollheim decided to pattern the publication after the now-defunct FANTASY FAN... The quality of material used was very high, and in this respect the magazine easily equaled its ideal... Collectors who have overlooked this periodical have missed much indeed..." - Moskowitz, The Immortal Storm, pp. 30-1. Pavlat and Evans, Fanzine Index (1965), pp. 82-3. Wollheim, Operation Phantasy: The Best from The Phantagraph, pp. 9-14. Early issues of THE PHANTAGRAPH were printed on wood pulp paper and extant issues are generally brittle. Aside from light age-darkening of the paper stock and rusted staples, this is a fine copy. Early issues of the magazine are rare, especially in nice condition. (#117137).
