    Humbug #1-9 Bound Volume (Humbug, 1957-58). This bound volume has its own Overstreet listing which calls it "extremely rare." We understand that this copy originally belonged to Al Jaffee, and the lot comes with a card signed by the artist. These are trimmed and bound copies of #1-9 (the other two issues of the title were in a larger format). We don't assign grades to bound volumes, but note that page quality is cream to off-white, and there are no defects aside from a bit of edge bumping and some slight smudging to the endpapers. Overstreet 2008 GD 2.0 value = $65; VG 4.0 value = $130; FN 6.0 value =$195; VF 8.0 value = $410; VF/NM 9.0 value = $693; NM- 9.2 value = $975.
