Beautiful, clean front and back covers and complete spine.
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTIONThe June 1925 issue of Weird Tales features a classic cover by Andrew Brosnatch, illustrating a scene from "Monsters of the Pit" by Paul S. Powers. The cover depicts a man trapped in a giant spider web attacking the spider with an axe. It is a stunningly unusual illustration, only possible on an issue of Weird Tales.
This issue also includes the story "The Devil-God" by Frank Belknap Long, with Brosnatch illustrations, and the essay "George Burroughs, Martyr" by Seabury Quinn, the fourth in his Servants of Satan series. This is a truly stunning copy. The covers are unusually clean with almost no visible wear, and no damage at all to the spine. It is miraculous to find a pulp in this condition, let alone one that is almost 100 years old. This earns a very rare VF (8.0), a grade almost wholly unattainable for pulps because of how cheaply they were made, printed, and sold.
