Description

    Amazing Stories Pulp Group (Ziff-Davis, 1950-53). Here is a nice group of 35 science fiction pulp magazines, consisting of a nearly complete run of Amazing Stories from January 1950 through March 1953. Only the Jan., Feb., and March 1951 issues are missing from the group. All of these pulps have been trimmed, with a blue paper dust cover attached by staples, and all have supple and attractive off-white pages. The blue paper dust covers have done an excellent job of preserving the gloss and vivid colors of the cover art. The three issues from 1953 have very minor rodent chew at the top right corner. It is difficult to assign a grade to pulps in this condition, but discounting the trimming and added dust covers, they all otherwise have the appearance of VG+ to FN copies. Highlights include an ultra-violent disintegration cover on the May 1952 issue, and a classic nude woman cover on the Sept. 1952 issue. The March 1953 issue is the last pulp-format issue before the magazine changed to a digest format. The Ultimate Guide to the Pulps VG value for group = $325.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
