Tucson: the society, 1982--. All items in very good shape: perfectly sound, clean and unmarked except for our consigner's code writ lightly in pencil (we've erased a couple, piece of cake). Remarkably stable format: each item runs twelve pages, no double issues, good alkaline paperstock, same editor, staplebound 11x8.5 inch self-wraps with a triple-column text leavened with b&w vignette photographs and drawings. One extra, a duplicate of v.2n.2, accompanies.
One expedition confirmed that what Indonesian villagers identified as a "Ri" was a dugong. Another discusses a very rare relative of the puma, with photo of a dead one. Miniature African elephants confirmed, &c &c &c. - V.1 n.1 texts commence with reports on the 'formation of the Society' and a definition of the cardinal term cryptozoology: '..it was felt that all the previous terms used in the literature, such as unknown animals, or extinct or legendary animals, were not specific enough [and] should include the possible existence of known animals in areas where they were not suspected to occur (either now or in the past), as well as the unknown persistence of presumed extinct animals to the present time or to the recent past..' These enthusiasts (credentialed) are people who can use good professional English. A semi-unfortunate accompanying photo shows a 'nessie' researcher and a 'sasquatch' researcher in company, which is hopefully as flaky as they get. Could a fraud be carried on this extensively? -no.
