BLUE BOOK: all 12 issues from 1937

The 12 issues of 1937 have great content and constitute as good a year of Blue Book as the Thirties produced. For example, there’s a complete “Kioga, Hawk of the Wilderness” serial by William L. Chester, the first installments of the revived “Red Wolf of Arabia” series by William Makin, a new series by H. Bedford-Jones, Arthur D. Howden Smith’s excellent SF/fantasy “The Island Monster,” and the first two installments of the three-part Edgar Rice Burroughs serial “Tarzan and the Elephant Men.” The customary beautiful Blue Book illustrations include beautiful pen-and-ink renderings by legendary Flash Gordon artist Alex Raymond, and the notorious Herbert Morton Stoops cover (February) showing bare-breasted native girls. In short, this is an outstanding group of pulp magazines. Condition: Overall Very Good Plus, meaning slightly above average. The December issue has a long shallow chip out of the front cover, and a few other covers are lightly creased. The November 1937 issue, with the Tarzan cover, is Fine.

At this price point you’re basically paying ten bucks each plus postage. The Tarzan issues alone normally sell for fifty bucks each in nice shape. So I believe the buyer of this lot will be getting a great deal. Not to mention the fact that it isn’t easy to get 12 consecutive issues in one fell swoop.
