More from the Weinberg Estate For Auction At Windy City

There will be several interesting and unique items in the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction, being held on Friday, April 12, 2019, at the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019, held at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). Here’s one of them, a copy of “Not at Night!” edited by Herbert Asbury, publication date November 1928. While it lacks a dustjacket, what makes it unique are the three signatures on the front free endpaper — editor Asbury, H.P. Lovecraft (present inside with “The Horror at Redhook”) and August W. Derleth (present inside with “The Coffin of Lissa” and “Bat’s Belfrey”). Pasted to the rear free endpaper is a review of the book clipped from the New York Times; I’ll post that in the comments.

2019 Auction Preview

The Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention has featured several fantastic estate auctions over the years. Our 2019 show will feature another, with the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction taking place on Friday evening, April 12, 2019. Parts two and three will be held at our 2020 and 2021 shows. While the auctions will primarily focus on pulps from Bob Weinberg’s great collection, they will also feature rare books and ephemera. If you collect science fiction or fantasy, you won’t want to miss these! Here’s a pic of four of the pulps — more to come!

If you’d like to see more, check the gallery in our Friday Auction Preview.
