    Startling Stories Group (Standard, 1947-52) Condition: Average VG (trimmed). This lot of 11 great science fiction pulps consists of the following issues of Startling Stories: May 1947, Jan. 1951, Mar. 1951, May 1951, July 1951, Sept. 1951, Feb. 1952, Mar. 1952, Apr. 1952, May 1952, and July 1952. These pulps all have clean, colorful covers, and bright, supple pages. They would grade higher, but the covers were all trimmed on three sides to eliminate the overhang. Three covers are by Alex Schomburg, and most of the others are by Earl Bergey. Story highlights include a Robert Heinlein short, a story by Arthur Clark, and Frank Herbert's first published sci-fi story. The Ultimate Guide to the Pulps VG value for group = $125.
