Description

    Astounding Stories Jan 1930 (V1#1) (Street & Smith, 1930) Condition: VG+. The landmark first issue of this long-running science fiction title! An army of giant alien beetles attacks on this cover painted by Hans Wessolowski. The inside covers are white, the pages are an even, supple light tan. There is about a quarter-inch of paper loss at the top and bottom of the spine, and there are a few spots of glue reinforcing the bottom left corner. There is also some very minor flaking at the lower right corner, and a small piece missing from the back cover at the lower left corner. Despite these minor defects, this remains a very nice copy of a highly desirable issue. The Ultimate Guide to the Pulps VG value = $600.
