This is the first issue of Courtroom Stories, published in August-September 1931 by Good Story Magazine Company. A scarce Harold Hersey title.
Focussing on non-fictional accounts of “Famous Trials of Today and Yesterday” the magazine contained very little fiction.
This issue features a outstanding cover by Walter M. Baumhofer who later painted most of the Doc Savage pulp covers. Courtroom Stories was published for six issues until April 1932.
These three stories are torn from the pages of the August-September, 1931 issue of Courtroom Stories magazine and is read with stirring intensity by Milton Bagby, Joe Formichella, and Mark Finfrock.
