From Fancyclopedia 2, ca. 1959
At times when there have been so many subscription fanzines being published that only the most active fan can keep up with them all, demand has risen for a Reader's Digest of the fan mags. A few issues of digests have been published by various fans, and LeZ and others sometimes ran reprints from their contemporaries, but no one appeared to handle the job as a steady thing.

See Fanthology.

In prozines, digest refers to a physical size, about 5½ x 8¼ inches, or the size of the aforementioned Reader's Digest.
