The Nightingale is the only good comic book according to Wertham. I have never seen one so I was wondering \(shrug\) if somebody owns one or has seen one.

Welcomebackpotter, you and I collect the same type of stuff, the rare stuff and I have to tell you I have been looking with a vengence for The Nightingale and I haven't even seen a picture of it!!!!!!!! I am not sure it exist. It is the number one book on my wish list. Same goes for the Archie official boy scout outfitter. I can't even find a picture of that.

How do you know it is not the book?

Wertham was a bit loose with the facts so it may be difficult to pin down.

Wasn't aware of this mystery but it is an interesting one. Don't have my copy of SOTI handy but presuming this is accurate...

He also points out that a "wholesome" comic called the Nightingale was not given its promised publicity in a national magazine because at the last minute the creators were told they had to submit it to an association run by crime comic publishers. By refusing to do so they lost the publicity.

... then the credibility of the whole incident does seem somewhat dubious.

Even beyond that, if this does bear some resemblance to reality, it sounds like there's a very good chance the book wasn't published. Sounds like the creators were so far off the beaten path that they didn't know the ins and outs of distribution, which also seems to imply that they hadn't printed yet.

If I had to bet on it I'd bet this book doesn't exist.

Interesting! I must admit that's more specific info than I thought there'd be.

A tidbit from google:

The Smithsonian has a collection that originated from a NYC gallery called Midtown Galleries that contains correspondence and records with references to Once-Upon-A-Time-Press:
