I picked these 2 bound editions a number of years ago ...

Nice find! Looks like a whole lot of Ditko. I like that is in two volumes as well. Great they stayed together and still bound.

I was pretty sure I had this. Johnny Craig file copy from Roger Hill. Although not officially “bound”, the holes suggest maybe they were with other probably consecutive issues. 

So I’ll stretch it a bit and call it from a “bound volume”.

Yeah, they are a bit brittle, but they have some great Ditko covers.

That often happens on some bound copies for some reason. The covers and interior color is usually very bright and glossy. I do have some with white pages as well. Depends on how they were stored I guess. 

On the ones like yours, I slip in a sheet of micro chamber paper every 4 issues or so. Seems to slow down or halt the aging a lot.

Most bound volumes are either sewn or glued into hard back covers. Some, however are simply punched and put into binders or home made covers.

This is an interesting example of the latter. I was cruising the bay a few years ago and ran into this one. Came from an estate. Was apparently used in the Terry Toons Movie Studios library. Note the markings and animator stamp . Other than the punch holes, these are beautiful copies. I really like the first appearance of Heckle and Jeckle.  They are also very easy to remove if you want to.

From bound volume likely kept at Timely. J.H. Compton worked as an editor I believe at Timely. Others have posted on these boards photos of MMC’s from the same bound volume.

NICE!  I think I remember Roy having a MM 9 from that volume at one time. There is also a Loyd Jaquette removed bound volume if I remember right.

From the same place as the Terry Toons volume, I also got this Austrailian set.

Winna! Being a HUGE EC fan, I’m speechless. And one of Russ’s is just icing on the cake!  :luhv:

I have one more! This is a great piece of popular culture memorabilia. You can read Playboy and Mad magazine and it seems like they came from the same place. Both really smart, funny, culturally important. Playboy devoted many pages of its early issues to serializing Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451. Unlike the early EC’s, though, Playboy gave him credit for the stories!

That is a cool one! I have seen a couple of those. Guess it was a popular thing to do with them. Hope it isn’t bound so tight that you can’t open the fold outs! :devil:

Awsome Adam! Being a big Schomburg fan, that’s one I’d really love to own. I suspect that it passed through Geppi’s hands. Being the buyer of the Harvey “warehouse” and his love for bound volumes.

Believe me- in 2019 there is nothing in any of the first year issues of Playboy that a teenage boy would even look twice at compared to what they see every day on television, magazines, and the internet. And there are no fold outs! The "centerfold" consists of a one page nude photo. A few scattered other photos throughout the magazine along with lots of cartoons involving sex. And lots of Ray Bradbury, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, even Boccaccio's Decameron.

Found this yesterday; I actually posted all the covers in the Four Color thread but nobody reacted.  I was curious if anybody knew what the source of the book might be:
