Cover Date: Annual 1939
Cover Price: US $ 0.25

Issue Tagline: 96 Pages in FULL COLOR!

Format: Color; Anthology; 96 pages

Synopsis:
Clark and Lois are on an assignment at the World's Fair. Clark must ditch Lois several times to save the day as Superman both on their way to and at the World's Fair.

Reprinted/Collected in:
DC Comics Rarities Archives (2004) HC vol. 01
Flashback Golden Age Comic Reprints (1970) #12
Golden Age Sandman Archives (2004) HC vol. 01
The New York World's Fair Comics (1939) #2
The Superman Chronicles (2006) TPB vol. 01
Superman: The World's Finest Comics Archives (2011) HC vol. 01

Notes:
96-page anthology. Notable for being, perhaps accidentally, the first appearance of The Sandman (I). Because this went on sale 30 April 1939, it slightly outpaced Adventure #40, which was probably meant to be the first appearance. It's unclear which of the two stories was the first to be completed by its creators--although almost certainly "The Tarantula Strikes" was the first to be written.

Possible alternate price of 15.

Technically, an unnumbered issue.

DC Comics website http://www.dccomics.com/errata made a correction to The DC Rarities Archives Volume 1 by stating that Worth B. Carnahan drew the back cover.
