    Weird Tales March 1923 (#1) (Popular Fiction, 1923) Condition: FR. The first issue from the longest-running and most influential of all pulp horror titles. This copy is a "first state," identified by the orange border around "Ooze," the man's orange shirt, and the woman's black bow, (colors are different on the rarer "second state" printing). A rare pulp, obtaining a copy in any condition is a remarkable achievement for most collectors. This example has suffered from the ravages of time but is still complete, and readable. The front and back covers are detached. Interior pages are tan but not brittle, and about 60% of the spine is still intact. This is the first copy of this pulp that Heritage has offered at auction. Bookery's Guide to Pulps GD value = $3,000.From the John McLaughlin Collection.
