    Fall 1936 Fanciful Tales of Time and Space Magazine with Lovecraft's "The Nameless City". (Oakman, Alabama: Sheperd & Wollheim, 1936), 45 pages plus three pages of advertising, staplebound in paper wrappers, 8vo (5.75" x 8.5"). This interesting magazine also contains stories from Robert E. Howard, August Derleth, and Donald Wollheim, co-publisher of Fanciful Tales and future publisher at Ace and DAW. "The Nameless City" is widely considered to be Lovecraft's first Cthulhu Mythos story, and here it appears for only the second time in print. It had been published previously in the amateur journal Wolverine in 1921. This very magazine was reprinted with Wollheim's permission in 1977, but this is the original. This wonderful vintage magazine is in very good condition. The cover shows some mild foxing, light edge wear, and a small tear along the back fore-edge, but the text is bright and clean, if a little toned around the edges. There is a small 1" diagonal tear on the table of contents page. A must for any Lovecraft collector. From the Ventura Collection.
