    True Mystic Science [v1 #2, December 1938] ed. R. T. Maitland Scott, Jr. (Continental News; Minneapolis, MN, 25¢, 84pp, large) []
    cover: Nude adolescent female faces reader; gold (?) band around hair; bunch of grapes and sheaf of wheat cover (most of) right and left breasts respectively (no indication what holds them there); right hand holds mystic device incorporating ship’s model and a balance; left holds device incorporating ankh and a four-walled bell; to either side of her are pillars carved with Egyptian hieroglyphics; picture cuts off just above navel level. The only cover that might have caused raised eyebrows at a newstand, I think. Promised lead story next month: Joan of Arc, by Paul Chadwick.


    True Mystic Science [v1 #3, January/February 1939] ed. R. T. Maitland Scott, Jr. (Continental News; Minneapolis, MN, 25¢, 84pp, large, cover: [Joan of Arc, in armor, gazes to her left offstage; over her right shoulder some sort of spirit face surrounded by rays of light gazes down on her] by Underwood & Underwood & The Bettmann Archive) []
    note on the table of contents offers an unusual reason for the combinated date: “In order to give hosts of new readers the time to catch up on the wealth of ground covered by TRUE MYSTIC SCIENCE, the January issue is combined with the February…”

    True Mystic Science [v1 #4, March 1939] ed. R. T. Maitland Scott, Jr. (Continental News; Minneapolis, MN, 25¢, 68pp, large, cover: [closeup of face of woman apparently in white uniform (nurse? nun?) who stares offstage, seemingly ignoring a mysterious light in the sky above her)]) []
    pagination runs from 103-166, not counting covers; 101-168 if covers are counted. The previous issue’s pagination stopped at 82 (or 84 counting covers, as TMS apparently did in the pagination of the earlier issues, where the first text page was p.3). There’s no explanation of why the jump from page 84 to page 101; certainly neither issue appears to be defective; maybe It’s A Mystical Thing. Details supplied by Denny Lien.

Randall (Continental News; Minneapolis, MN, 25¢, 68pp, large, cover: [face of a woman with hand to lips (fingers twisted into some sort of, presumably, mystic gesture), staring up in direction of an apparition in the sky of a large old-fashioned key)]) []

    The photo on the back is comparable to the entries in present-day FT “Simulacra Corner”—e.g. natural phenomena (tree branches and foliage in this case) which bear close accidental resemblance to people or things—but unsurprisingly TMS is pushing this photo (from 1927) as miraculous rather than accidental.
