17 x Infinity - a reprint anthology edited by Groff Conklin (copyright 1963.) Stories are from 1912 to 1962 - 2 from Astounding/Analog, 5 from Galaxy and 4 from Magazine of F&SF.
Conklin was a freelance editor, producing almost 40 anthologies large and small from 1946 until his death in 1968. He was book reviewer for Galaxy for the first 5 years (through October 1955.) Most will agree that he had good taste, and his anthologies were considered and capable. If you want some good reading - of the sort that you may not find easily, look here. Unless you have a really, really large magazine collection, you are likely to find a combination of stories and authors that you don't have or are curious about.
