Superb! Thanks Patrice!

Barb,

 

found those on Ebay, dirt cheap. Numbering of pages is carried from one issue to the next, 56 pages. All poetry save for a few very short pieces on poetry and writing poetry at the end.

I knew these were rare, but apparenly they are even rarer than that. At least I haven't heard of any other collector owning one the REH issues. Talk about elusive.

Patrice,

Thanks….what an exciting find! Congratulations. When you posted these, I remembered that REH mentioned The Poet's Scroll in the Collected Letters so I researched it (you know me!). Apparently REH had submitted other poems that weren't accepted. When he and Clyde were going to publish their own poetry book, REH wanted to send a copy to this editor.

 

I hope we can get out our verse in book form. I want to send a copy, for one thing, to the editor of the Poet’s Scroll, who used to reject my verse because he said it was not rhythmic, whereas he didn’t have the guts to admit the real reason — which was that it was entirely too brutal for him and his pink tea laureates. 

 

So I did a cursory search online about the other two *pink tea laureates* mentioned on the pages: Lulu Brunt Dawson and Robert Seymour Trulock. She edited a poetry book about Arizona Women in Poetry in 1939 but nothing since and nothing at all about Trulock. I wonder how many of their poems the editor chose.

 

Thanks Patrice for posting this. They are two more pieces of REH history. Fun!

BarB

There were five poems published in The Poets' Scroll, but of the lot of 4 I managed to snatch, only 2 had REH contents. Maybe I'll try to take pics of the entire TOC for Bill Thom, but it's not that easy to do that without damaging the mags, and you know how obsessive I am abt condition. I noticed a few of the poets were from Texas.

Very glad these gems are in your worthy hands and appreciate you sharing. Keep looking and good luck in finding more REH stuff. Thanks Barb for some history and information on these gems.

Patrice,

Any idea of what the other three poems are? Both "Flaming Marble" and “Dreaming on Downs” are in the Collected Poetry. "Flaming" was included in a letter to Clyde Smith in late 1928 so I know it came from Smith's letters but how did the copy of "Dreaming on Downs" surface? Did Glenn have copies of The Poet's Scroll? Are there typescripts? Were these part of the microfiche that Barlow made and were sent to Glenn?

The Poets' Scroll

jan 29 "Flaming Marble"

feb 29 "Rebellion"

apr 29 "Dreaming on Downs"

jun 29 "Empire's Destiny"

aug 29 "Shadow of Dreams"

 

Some we had drafts of. The existence of the REH poems in TPS became known in the 1980s, when Glenn got photocopies of the TCS letters.

That is quite an impressive collection! Is that every Conan comic ever published?

No'quite. I don't go in much for foreign editions, although I have a few British and French publications (and photocopies of those old Mexican La Reina la Costa Negra, and I don't go in much for variant covers. Also, this is two months ago, so I've added the stuff Dark Horse and Dynamite has put out, picked up the second Red Sonja big hardcover art edition, #2 and #3 of the British Savage Sword... but it's pretty much a run of every English-language Conan comic published in the US, yeah. Or as damn close as I can get it. No collection is ever truly complete.

Bobby: What is in the picture frame on the floor? There is a bit of a glare.

 

Do you have Savage Tales magazines 1971? I believe a  #1 in Mint condition is about $600 and a CGC graded 9.8 around $6,000.

 

Thanks!

That's an original ink-wash of a comic by R. K. Milholland of Something*Positive fame:

I do have a copy of Savage Tales #1 (although for some reason it's not in the gallery), although it's far from mint - mine is a reading library.
