    Vice Squad Detective #1 (Graphic Arts Inc., 1933) Condition: VG. A gorgeous copy of this rarely seen pulp, rumored to have been shut down before being distributed due to its racy content, with only a handful making it into the public. Bookery's lists it as "rare" and notes: "Possibly fewer than a dozen known copies, although several have come up for sale in the past five years." Contents include a story by Laurence Donovan, who would later author several Doc Savage stories. The front cover is complete and marred only by the usual pulp wear to the edges and overhang, and a subscription crease down the center of the front cover. There are approximately 2" separations to the front and back covers along the tail of the spine, which is also complete with some scuffing and a small tape stain at the bottom. A fantastic collectible. Bookery's Guide to Pulps VG value = $1,250.
