The Master Detective / June 1938 Issue / Volume 18, No. 4
MacFadden Publications, Inc., New York and Dunellen, NJ 1938 - New York and Dunellen, NJ: MacFadden Publications, Inc., 1938. June, 1938 issue, Volume 18, No. 4. Cover by Dalton Stevens, interior illustrations largely from photographs. Illustrated Wraps, 11 1/2" x 8 1/2", 80 pp. Remarkably well-preserved copy; by pulp standards, this issue is About Near Fine. Small amounts of wear at spine ends, very light occasional soiling - and that's about it. See scans. Extraordinarily sharp, with not even typical pulp age-toning of the pages, probably due to better-quality paper used by Metropolitan. An issue from a very scarce pulp detective series, "The Master Detective", which featured non-fiction offerings in its subject area, written essentially journalistically, but, of course, with a flair. Dalton Stevens memorable cover art (see scan) captures the spirit of the series.
