Mainstream: A Literary Quarterly [the first three issues: Winter 1947, Spring 1947, Summer 1947], Sillen, Samuel, ed.
2 Sillen, Samuel, ed. Mainstream: A Literary Quarterly [the first three issues: Winter 1947, Spring 1947, Summer 1947]
New York Mainstream Associates, Inc. 1947 NO (Vol. I, Nos. 1-2-3) Hardcover Near Fine 
[nice clean copies, all three issues in comparable condition, with No. 3 only showing a touch of fading to the covers and a bump to the bottom rear corner affecting the last ten pages or so]. The first three issues of this ambitious quarterly, founded as the clouds were gathering over the American left/progressive movement in those early Cold War years. The editorial board includes many of the "usual suspects," including three who would become widely known (and would serve jail time) as members of the Hollywood Ten: Alvah Bessie, John Howard Lawson, and Dalton Trumbo. Contributors to these first three issues include Lawson, Trumbo, Thomas Bell, Arnaud d'Useau, Langston Hughes, Meridel Le Sueur, Alexander Saxton, Millard Lampell, Walter Bernstein, Stefan Heym, Howard Fast, and Ben Field. The publication would last only one more issue after these three, then combined in 1948 with "New Masses" to form "Masses & Mainstream," which changed its title back to simply "Mainstream" in 1956.

New American Review (issues 1-15) / American Review: The Magazine of New Writing (issues 16-26) [complete set, plus extra volumes], Solotaroff, Theodore, ed.
3 Solotaroff, Theodore, ed. New American Review (issues 1-15) / American Review: The Magazine of New Writing (issues 16-26) [complete set, plus extra volumes]
New York New American Library / Simon and Schuster / Bantam Books 1967-1977 NO 1st printings (except as noted) Hardcover Near Fine 
[graded Near Fine as a set; all books are tight and unread, and about as nice a group as one could hope to assemble despite a few minor depredations (occasional light wear, some age-toning to the page edges of a few volumes); all were acquired directly from a long-time editorial staff member of the publication, who had kept them untouched in storage since the time of their original issue]. "Was New American Review the Best Literary Magazine Ever?" This was the question posed (and the case persuasively argued) in a 2008 Slate article by Gerald Howard. Offered here is an opportunity to investigate and draw your own conclusions: this is a full set (26 volumes) of the original publication, plus two additional volumes. (See below.) Founded in 1967, New American Review passed through three publishers in its ten-year history. The first ten issues (under the New American Library imprint) were issued in pictorial hardcovers as well as mass-market paperback format, and are present here in the hardcover issues; in addition, issue #1 appeared as a full-size trade hardcover, with dust jacket, which is the first of the two extra volumes included in this set. The five issues (#11-#15) put out by Simon and Schuster in 1971 and 1972 were small-format trade softcovers (about half an inch taller than standard mass-market paperbacks), and the remainder of the run, issued by Bantam, were standard mass-market paperbacks. (The second "bonus" volume included here is "Many Windows: 22 Stories from American Review," a Harper Colophon trade paperback published in 1982.) This set was acquired directly from a long-time editorial staff member of NAR, who had kept them untouched in storage since the time of their original publication. The overall grade of the set is Near Fine; all volumes are tight and appear unread, and despite a few minor depredations (occasional light wear, some age-toning to the page edges of a few volumes) constitute about as nice a collection of this landmark publication as one could hope to assemble.
