Does anybody here have copies of The Thrill Book?

I had one until a few months ago when I traded it away.

The Thrill Book, Sep 15, 1919

Beautiful cover colors on that copy! 

About 3 issues in that run I'd like to snag.

Two in today, courtesy of @asimovpulps:  The September 1940 Super Science Stories, Asimov's first Robot story; and the June 1942 Astounding, featuring the second Foundation story and the first Foundation cover.  I'm getting close to a complete set of the Foundation stories in Astounding.

Completing the Foundation series was what got me into pulp collecting in the first place, I'm excited you're getting close and happy to have made a small contribution :)

I'm curious which ones you have left to complete the set?

The August 1944 issue; although it was in between my posting the two books today and you asking that I ordered a copy of the October 1944 issue, so waiting on that.

I'm actually trying to put together a complete run of the Campbell Astounding/Analog run; I'm only at about 40% so far.  But some of the issues are getting a lot harder to find, fast, right now.

And now I've only got the one issue to go.  This is one of only two Foundation stories that didn't get the cover, although serials only got the cover on the first issue.

Fun one in the mail today! My first Lovecraft pulp, not a bad one to start with. February 1936 Astounding Stories with At the Mountains of Madness on the cover. Pretty decent shape all things considered and I got a pretty good deal on it....of course now I feel the urge to complete the set which is not currently within the budget...

I think that's the hardest of the four Astoundings with Lovecraft to find; a great start and very nice pick-up!  You'll find Lovecraft pulps to be addictive now that you've had your first taste, though.  At least you're half-way to the set of "US pulps with Lovecraft covers under his own name".

Just for reference, because I can't resist:
