First Fandom 1946 4th World Science Fiction "pacificon" Program 40 Signatures:
For your consideration we present this incredible and likely one of a kind piece. This is an original convention program book from the 1947 4th World Science Fiction Convention "Pacificon"! This event was held from August 30th through September 1st in Los Angeles. This is a piece from a field of collectables known as "first fandom". First fandom denotes the early period of the convention era and the fans and artists associated with it. What makes this beauty unique and extraordinary is that it is filled with 40 autographs/signatures of the people who make up first fandom. Some of these are artists, authors and book sellers and others are just fans of the time. This is truly a wonderful item that demands the right home and a serious collector. Some of the author names are EXTREMELY well known in the field and others are more obscure. Included are such luminaries as A. E. Van Vogt, Robert Bloch, Forry Ackerman and many more! In the world of first fandom these people are all very well known. These are the early greats that made the fan and convention world of today possible. This is literally a museum level item!

The following is as complete of a list as I could make for the individual signatures. If I could not make out the handwriting I did not include it so this list is not complete and it is in no particular order.
