Condition: As shown and described below, from the Kennett Neily Collection (white mountain)
From the amazing collection of Kennett Neily or the White Mountain Collection (see below), he dated most of his item when he piked it up, if it is dated i show it. ---vintage item as shown, in great shape. NOTE--see my photo of the table of contents to see what is in this issue Niekas is a gen anthology of art, reviews and articles. The title is Lithuanian, meaning "nothing," or "nobody." Ed Meskys states (The View From Entropy Hall #12) "I started a separate mailing-comments zine for the APA, and changed its name to NIEKAS and started the numbering over again with the June 1962 issue.... Since there was no Tolkien fanzine being published I decided to devote NIEKAS to Tolkien and try to run at least one Tolkien related piece in each issue." There were forty-eight issues. About Originally, Meskys (at the time a professor and a member of The Tolkien Society at the now-defunct Belknap College in Center Harbor, New Hampshire) edited in collaboration with Felice Rolfe, but by the late 1980s he was editing it by himself. The magazine originated as an apazine before being expanding to a full-fledged fanzine (Meskys later wrote, "I started a separate mailing-comments zine for the APA, and changed its name to NIEKAS and started the numbering over again with the June 1962 issue.... Since there was no Tolkien fanzine being published I decided to devote NIEKAS to Tolkien and try to run at least one Tolkien related piece in each issue."[1]), as it began to play a prominent role in the early development of Tolkien fandom.[2] Issue #7 included a letter from C. S. Lewis to Meskys that mentions The Lord of the Rings. Some Contributors Included Jack Harness, Bjo Trimble, Dave Locke, Arthur Thomson, Anthony Boucher, Philip K. Dick, Roger Zelazny, Diana Paxson, Clyde Kilby, Vaughn Bode, Jack Gaughan, Tim Kirk, Charles N. Brown, Piers Anthony, Marion Zimmer Bradley, Ben Indick, S. T. Joshi, John Boardman, Don D’Ammassa, Sam Moskowitz, Andrew J. Offutt, and Darrell Schweitzer. i dispatch my items quickly and safely, no worries. david (syottoys) so i can find your item--medium brown box ITS HERE ITS HERE side A in bag from the amazing "White Mountain Collection" from the collector Kennett Neily, you may have heard of his amazing comics, well this is one of his other items, know for being date stamped (or written) the day he purchased (province) them and left in unread, clean condition. i am listing the items separately, as the condition is unbelievable, if there is any wear it is light and as shown. WHY HAVE HIS COMICS SOLD FOR SO MUCH MONEY: CONDITION, CONDITION, CONDITION--and look at these books, WOW... In 1984 a man approached Jerry Weist, owner of "The Million Year Picnic" comic shop in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with a small sampling of comics from his collection. This initial meeting was the hobby's introduction to what is now referred to as the White Mountain Collection. Few collections of Silver Age books approach the consistently high level of condition and page quality that White Mountain copies possess. Weist would eventually become the organizer for Sotheby's comic book and comic art auctions. In that capacity, he introduced the collecting world to this fabulous discovery, offering choice samplings in Sotheby's 1991, 1993 and 1996 auctions. Many collectors are still not aware that the collection's large body of Silver Age publications also included a small sampling of choice, early Underground Comix. It should also be said that most collectors have yet to grasp the significance of that inclusion. For most Silver Age collectors, the UG's are the forgotten books of the period, and this is a serious omission on their part. AND EVEN FEWER KNOW AB0UT HIS COLLECTION OF SCIENCE FICTION BOOKS, H.P LOVECRAFT ITEMS (he published a zine called Lovecraftian Ramblings in the 80's), MAPS, TRAVEL BROCHURES, CAR MANUALS, MAGAZINES, ART, ETC. also in amazing, mostly unread mint condition.
