Description

    House of Mystery Ashcan NN (DC, 1951) Condition: FN+ This item is a true piece of history. Ashcans were used to secure the copyright for the title and only a few were made. Presumably, DC produced this ashcan to secure the title for its first horror book. All ashcans were produced by hand and as such, this copy was hand stapled and is untrimmed. The pages on this book are a very nice off-white. There are only two known copies of this particular ashcan and the other one is secured in the archives of DC's vaults. The cover image is from the powerful and exciting Danger Trail #3, and the interior is from Star Spangled #109. Because the book is untrimmed, there is some light damage to the top and bottom edges of the cover. All in all, this would be a truly unique and historically important addition to any collection.
