Diablerie 4, May 1944.
Of interest to Howard collectors because it includes the first appearance of E. Hoffman's Price's essay "Robert Ervin Howard".
The fanzine is mimeographed, in color, and all the photos are pasted over the "printed" page. I can't imagine all the work that went into this for a fanzine. For all of that, it was nearly distributed as "Diablepie"!
Contents page gives the print run: 75 copies.

A rather tough set to acquire in any grade (and even more so in pristine condition), that is of interest to die-hard collectors only, but really nice imo, are the seven chapbooks published by G.T. Hamilton between 1975 and 1978. Plenty of stories published the first time anywhere in those. Each is a lavishly produced chapbook (stapled) with a stiff cover, a white dustjacket, and cover + full pages illos by the remarkable Steve Fabian.
The more common first:

Blades for France (300 copies printed)

The Shadow of the Hun (318 copies printed)

And the two toughest ones, by far:

Bicentennial Tribute to Robert E. Howard (194 copies)

And ultra-tough Spears of Clontarf, a powerful tale for a print run of 152 copies.

I've had a productive couple of weeks, managing to add 8 REH related items to my library and another dozen issues of "Savage Sword of Conan" to the collection.

That makes two of us!

Two more Weird Tales: Feb 1937 (Dig Me no Grave) and Sep 1938 ("A Thunder of Trumpets", and a cover I simply love.)

This one isn't in great shape but it's fairly tough to find. Published in 1944, this collection edited by Derleth predates Skull-Face and Others by two years and contains "The Black Stone."

Here's the cover of Booth Mooney's Lone Scout tribe paper. Mooney is the guy that started The Junto, FYI.
