Got this pulp from David T Alexander several years ago. He claimed it was a file copy from the pulp author Art Lawson. He bought it directly from his estate. He had many of them but I was drawn to this one because of it's excellent Halloween cover. Pages are about as white as any pulp I've ever owned. Looks un-read...

That's a beauty

In Fantasy illustrated's latest catalog, Dave Smith says there were 900 to 1,000 pulps in the Yakima pedigree. He says the collection starts in 1939, but the OO sought out some back issues of titles he liked. Those are in only average condition.

The collection was 75% sci-fi.

There were many Yakima pulps sold by family members before Dave bought the large group at a later date.

I was told by people who purchased them that it was kind of a free for all by the family members taking groups of pulps on their own

Dave leaves out that small detail in his article. He makes it sound like he discovered the collection and purchased it en toto.
