    Black Magic Album #1 (Arnold Book Co., circa 1954) Condition: FN. This square bound British edition is by the same publisher who put out Tales From the Crypt and Haunt of Fear in the UK (as well as the comic-size UK Black Magic). This is a stout 160-pager! It has the Simon and Kirby cover from V3#2 of the US series, and some of the content is from that issue, but there are also stories from Atlas' Astonishing and Mystic, with art by Gene Colan, Jerry Robinson, Joe Maneely, and Jim Mooney. There's a tape stain around the spine, but otherwise the cover looks great. Though this was printed on the cheapest of paper, and the pages are starting to tan a bit, they aren't brittle. We had never seen this item before, and it would be quite a prize for anyone who collects pre-Code horror! Not listed in Overstreet. From the John McLaughlin Collection.
