Got in a collection of early issues of Unspeakable Oath fanzine. Among them was the ultra-rare 1st print of Issue One.

At auction -> https://www.ebay.com/itm/164064405624

Unspeakable Oath was published by Pagan Publishing in their earliest days in support of the Call of Cthulhu roleplaying game.

I’ve sold a number of the later print Orange cover Issue Ones over the years. This is the only 1st/1st I’ve seen. The Premiere Issue is in a digest-sized format, the only UO that would be published that way. The later printings and subsequent issues were in a more squarish format.
