    Description

    Weird Tales April 1924 and May 1924 Group (Popular Fiction, 1924). Two rare bedsheet issues make up this lot. They are dated April 1924 (GD/VG) and May 1924 (spine rebuilt, covers reattached to spine - Apparent GD/VG). Both issues include features attributed to Harry Houdini (but actually ghost-written for him). The May issue is triple-sized, and was the last bedsheet-format issue. It includes the story "The Loved Dead," a tale so controversial that it led to many copies being removed from newsstands. Bookery's Guide to Pulps approximate value for group = $1,400.From the John McLaughlin Collection.
