Detailed Product Description
This copy is in like new condition. We bought the last copies from Helen and Jean about twenty years ago!

There is a great story about how we bought our Summit Magazines. Around 1992, after Helen and Jean had stopped publishing the magazines, they called me and asked if I would like to buy all the books they had ever reviewed in the magazine. Publishers always send review copies to magazines and newspapers. I was very excited and said yes, and in fact I was planning on being in California soon and could come by and pick them up.

Just before my trip I called them to confirm the visit. They told me they had changed their mind and decided to keep the books. I asked them, "Did they have any back issues of the magazine left?"  They said yes. I asked how many. They had no idea. So I asked them if it was all in one pile, how big would the pile be? They said, "It would be about 4 feet by 4 feet by 4 feet."

I said, "Oh, then you have half a cord!"

I did pick them up, there were over 3500 magazines. They said they still had some Vol 1 No 1s left. They were 37 years old then. When I saw that Number 1's were white, I asked them to sign them. Now that I have had them almost as long as Helen and Jean did, we have only 1 signed one left, and a few unsigned number ones.  Of their 3500 copies plus another 1000 I already had, we have only a few hundred left, very few from the collectible first 5 years.

We maintain a large inventory of Summit Magazine back issues 1960-1989. Please e-mail your want list to orders@chesslerbooks.com.
