Pulps Pricings Sales Census: Far West Stories (Oct. 1931) and Far West Romances (April 1932)

A Far West Stories and Far West Romances set of 2 magazines recently sold on eBay for $221.39

FAR WEST STORIES – Oct. 1931 (Issue 75 of 84)

FAR WEST STORIES - Oct. 1931

FAR WEST STORIES – Oct. 1931

Authors: All but one 9 page story (?) are reprints from the early 1921-1925 WESTERN STORY MAGAZINE. And I would question that one story because it’s strange a ‘not-a- big-name in Westerns’ would have the only original story, and no cover spot.

 

Walt Coburn, Howard E. Morgan, Robert Ormond Case, Roy W. Hinds, Christopher B. Booth (non-reprint (?))

Bookery: FAR WEST STORIES are listed as “Scarce” and $15.00 – $35.00 – $75.00

 

FAR WEST ROMANCES – April 1932 (Issue 81 of 84)

Authors: Jack Bechdolt, Isabel S. Way,

FAR WEST ROMANCES - April 1932

FAR WEST ROMANCES – April 1932

Cliff Walters, C. Wiles Hallock

 

Bookery: FAR WEST ROMANCES are listed as “Rare” and $20.00 – $50.00 – $100.00

FAR WEST ROMANCES - April 1932 (Back Cover)

FAR WEST ROMANCES – April 1932 (Back Cover)

 

 

“…lot of 2 streets & smiths far west magazines oct. 1931 & april 1932 both. Have all pages except 1932 back cover is missing part of page.”

I would say it’s missing 2/3’s of it’s back cover.

Pulps Pricings Sales Census: Westland Love Magazine (March 1934)

Westland Love Magazine – March 1934 recently sold on eBay for $174.26 3RD Issue of 5.

Authors: Howard E. Morgan, Myrtle Juliette Corey;

WESTLAND LOVE MAGAZINE - March 1934

WESTLAND LOVE MAGAZINE – March 1934

H. Ralph Goller (there’s a Ralph Goller who had only one other story in the equally Rare ZOOM – Aug./Sept. 1931);
Clyde Wilson (this is either one of the 2 Clyde Wilson’s in the FictionMags Index or a completely new one.
Clyde B. Wilson had 8 stories published in 1915, 1917-1919, 1927 and 1929 in the ‘big name’ titles: ARGOSY, BLUE BOOK, ALL-STORY WEEKLY, PEOPLE’S, COMPLETE STORIES, and finally in REAL DETECTIVE TALES AND MYSTERY STORIES.
Just Clyde Wilson had 3 published stories: 1931 WESTERN ROMANCES – May 1931 (I’m thinking he’s probably this one), 1938 THRILLING WONDER STORIES, and a 1942 WESTERN ACES.

 

“1931 vol 1 #3… all pages are attached to the binding over all in very nice condition top cover has crease”

Copies are so scarce that there are no cover images of ANY copy in Galactic Central; here is one finally.
Bookery says, “Rare” $20.00 – $50.00 – $100.00

I’d figure it’s in the $175.00 to $275.00 price range also for the true rarity of the title.
