And a couple more Argosy issues from my LCS; the March 11 1922 was the last issue from March 1922 I needed.  I enjoy the off register covers occasionally, so it's kinda fun to see this one.  I wouldn't like all my books like that, though.

The Sept. 26, 1936 issue has part two of "Tarzan and the Magic Men", which was eventually part of Tarzan the Magnificent.

I think we'll be able to tell right after the one hits him in the face and leaves an impression.

I actually looked for the off register thread to cross post the book there, but I couldn't find it.  My search-fu is weak. (shrug)

Picked up a pretty sharp copy of a Brundage cover Weird Tales... my first Brundage :) Love the artwork.

I've loved Henry Kuttner since I first read "Mutant"  + a CAS 1st Mag appearance and an HPL 1st Mainstream Mag print of The Other Gods.

The colors are nice and no bad chipping or creasing. Right in my wheelhouse.

Still trying to figure out how to deal with unwinding/bending up the overhang and getting a pulp into a proper bag without damage.

Am i wrong in thinking many long time pulp holders aren't as anal as comic guys are about how little corner folds and  dings sit in the bags?

A very nice pick-up.  I'm not a high grade collector, but my general impression is most pulp types recognize a perfect untrimmed edge is, if not a contradiction in terms, a minor miracle.  If the book was issued trimmed, then they're as picky as anybody.  Weird Tales is an oddball with its one trimmed edge and much less rough top and bottom relative to most pulps, so it's probably hard to compare it to anything other than other issues of Weird Tales as to how collectors react.

Then again, give me an unfaded and complete spine on a WT and I'm delighted. B|

Congrats on your first Brundage, by the way.  Be warned they're addictive, a few years ago I was delighted to get one so my collection had an example.  You see my 19th in my last post.  As far as I can tell there are only 79 pulps with her work... 74 covers, one reprint cover, and four books with only interior art.  (Along with 5 that have both covers and interior art.  All 9 issues with interior art are from the 40's.)

Thanks - you're right about addiction I already have another on the way lol. I am trying to get a few "types" to start, and to fulfill that there'll definitely be a few more Brundage covers involved. They're very elegant figures, softer and more refined than many of the other pulp artists.

I'm less picky about pulp condition than I am about my paperbacks, some are an order of magnitude more expensive and I have to keep my collecting budget to what I can raise by selling other stuff in order to stay married lol. Still looking for nicely presenting copies though, and my pet peeves will be the same - I don't like prominent corner creases. For each thing I look at it's a price/grade weigh-in. This one has some fading on the spine, it's orange not red, but no paper loss anywhere really and the cover & pages are fairly bright so I'm happy. 

This one is definitely not trimmed, but the next one might be. I'll post it for comments - it was pretty nice otherwise and could just be mis-wrapped, i'll know better when it's in hand. The top edge is  very sharp and lower than the pages but the bottom overhangs a lot more than this one and waaay more than the 1932 one I previously picked up (which it's closer in age to). It's a continuing education I gather.

Can't remember if I ever posted these or not. This would probably be the place though.

Very nice.  The only vintage Shadow hardcover I have is not nearly as in demand as those, nor as in nice a condition:

So here's the offender. Great book, great color, but that overhang at the top looks possibly trimmed. I'm not sure...  maybe... it's very even all the way around the wrap. And the bottom overhang is very large... much more than on my others so I think the whole cover may be pasted on lower than my others

Why I really think its not trimmed is that the spine edge top is level with the rest of the spine edge, I'm not sure how you could even trim the spine top  without  digging into the page folios underneath, the paper there looks undisturbed???

I'm going to try to carefully unbend that fold on the bottom edge, hope it doesn't flake away. It looks like it's been folded a loooong time and not much paper left on the fold.

That one is not trimmed, it's just the cover was attached a little lower than it should have been.  Weird Tales from that era have factory trimmed right edges and small overhang at the top and bottom.  Yours is just shifted towards the bottom, making a larger overhang there.

If the paper is still supple, you can probably unfold that piece at the bottom.  It is a risk, though. :wishluck:
