THE. Winter 1948 - Autumn 1949 . ARKHAM SAMPLER, August Derleth, number 1-volume 2 volume 1, number 4.

Sauk City, Wisconsin: Arkham House, 1948-1949 (volume 1, number 1-volume 2, number 4). Octavo, printed wrappers. First edition. All published. A short lived, but important periodical. In addition to printing first appearances of fiction by Ray Bradbury, H. P. Lovecraft, Clark Ashton Smith, Robert Bloch, Theodore Sturgeon, A. E. van Vogt and many others, the magazine published essays, criticism, memoirs and book reviews. One issue was devoted to science fiction. The final issue included an index. All issues were limited to 1200 copies except the "All Science-Fiction Issue" that had a 2000-copy print run. 10 mm closed tear at lower spine end of issue for Spring 1948, just a bit of the inevitable rust staining from binding staples to front and rear covers of several issues, a fine set. A remarkably nice set, and uncommon thus. (#158454).

Price: $1,250.00
