A Rare Copy of Fantasy Magazine, March 1936

Ok, this one is starting at $199.00. Whew. You'd think it was a lettered edition of Brian Keene's new book or something. Heh. Again, this is one that doesn't surface very often.

Seller states: FANTASY MAGAZINE, March, 1936 issue, Vol 6, No 2.
New York: [No Publisher]. 1936.
Contains the first appearance in print of the short fantasy story THIRTEEN PHANTASMS by Clark Ashton Smith, later collected in his 1970 Arkham House collection OTHER DIMENSIONS.
Small octavo, original printed wrappers, stapled. Edited by Julius Schwartz, Raymond A. Palmer, Forrest J. Ackermann and Clay Ferguson, FANTASY MAGAZINE (previously titled SCIENCE-FICTION DIGEST) is a legendary fan magazine. This issue also contains A Biographical Sketch of August Derleth by Ray Palmer.
Cheap paper browning, spine mostly split (but holding, as the staples are side-saddle), a few tiny tears.
The rear cover bears a full-page ad for the Visionary Press edition of Lovecraft's THE SHADOW OVER INNSMOUTH. A very good copy of a very rare item.
