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

SIGNED by Helen Kilness and Jean Crenshaw

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.
