Icon: Frank Frazetta LTD

Underwood Books produced a remarkable retrospective of Frank Frazetta’s art in ICON: A Retrospective by Frank Frazetta. The regular run of 1200 copies is very nice, but this is one of 52 lettered copies with an embossed stamped Frazetta art print and slipcase. Incredibly scarce and in beautiful AS NEW condition.

Gods of Mars

“The Gods of Mars” by Edgar Rice Burroughs — the second novel featuring the greatest swordsman on two planets, John Carter, and the incomparable Dejah Thoris — originally appeared as a five part serial in the pulp, The All-Story, in the January 1913 through May 1913 issues. These issues of The All-Story are incredibly difficult to find, particularly in nice condition.

Two of them, however, will be in the Saturday evening auction at the upcoming 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). The auction will be held on the evening of Saturday, April 13, 2019. Roughly the first half of that auction will feature material from the estate of Glenn Lord, which will then be followed by some great material from a few other collections.

This copy of the May 1913 issue, containing part five of the ERB serial and sporting another fine cover by Clinton Pettee, is from one of those. The April 1913 issue, containing the fourth installment of the ERB serial, will also be in the auction.

A.A. Merritt

Abraham Merritt was one of Bob Weinberg’s favorite authors. There will be a few interesting Merritt items in the first part of the Robert Weinberg Estate Auction being held at the 2019 Windy City Pulp and Paper Convention (April 12-14, 2019 at the Westin Lombard Yorktown Center). The auction will be held on the evening of Friday, April 12, 2019.

Among them is one lot containing correspondence related to Merritt’s classic novel, “The Ship of Ishtar,” which was originally serialized in Argosy All-Story Weekly between November 8, 1924 and December 13, 1924, prior to being published in hardcover by G. P. Putnam’s Sons in 1926. The lot contains correspondence from Merritt, pulp publisher The Frank A. Munsey Company, and Putnam re: having certain of the copyrights in the story assigned back to Merritt, in order that Putnam could publish the book. Here’s a scan of a few items in this lot — a letter from Merritt to Bob Davis at Munsey, dated September 15, 1924 and signed by Merritt, together with the first page of the copyright assignment back to Merritt.

Superworld Comics
