Date d'édition : 1935
Reliure : Soft cover
Large octavo, single issue, printed from typeset copy, self wrappers, stapled. A legendary amateur magazine of the 1930s, THE PHANTAGRAPH was the retitled continuation of Wilson Shepherd's club magazine, THE INTERNATIONAL SCIENCE FICTION GUILD'S BULLETIN (the 4-page hectographed first issue appeared in May 1934). This July-August 1935 issue was the first issue edited by Wollheim as well as the first printed issue, a large 8-page job produced by amateur publisher William Crawford. This issue includes contributions by Donald A. Wollheim, F. Orlin Tremaine, H. C. Koenig, Wilson Shepherd, and others. "Encouraged by the excellent material being received from Smith, Lovecraft and others, Wollheim decided to pattern the publication after the now-defunct FANTASY FAN. The quality of material used was very high, and in this respect the magazine easily equaled its ideal. Collectors who have overlooked this periodical have missed much indeed." - Moskowitz, The Immortal Storm, pp. 30-1. Pavlat and Evans, Fanzine Index (1965), pp. 82-3. Wollheim, Operation Phantasy: The Best from The Phantagraph, pp. 9-14. Early issues of THE PHANTAGRAPH were printed on wood pulp paper and extant issues are generally brittle, especially this large format July-August 1935 issue (25.3 x 20.3 cms). Paper age-darkened and a bit brittle at edges, a very good or somewhat better copy. Early issues of the magazine are rare, especially in nice condition. (#92670). N° de réf. du libraire 92670
