Ken Magazine July 14, 1938, Hemingway, Ernest
19 Hemingway, Ernest Ken Magazine July 14, 1938
Chicago, Illinois Ken Inc. 1938 Volume I, No. 2 Soft Cover Near Fine Folio - over 12" - 15" tall 
Amazingly nice magazine with very little wear and pristine pages. Oversized at 10" x 13 -1/4" and no mailind label. The magazine launched on April 7, 1938 by the founders of Esquire, but it lasted a scant two years with two issues a month. It was political and controversial, so much so that Ernest Hemingway stopped writing for it after 14 issues. Here he has a short article entitled Call For Greatness. The main story goes with the cover art, a piece about Dr. Robert Ley, head of the German Labor Front, who hatched a plan to create a "hero-incubator" which would seclude 4000 uber-blond children for 20 years after which 1000 would be the future leaders of the Reich. There are also articles about "bums" in the big cities and "The Negro You Never Know." This is a rather scarce issue and especially so in this condition. Only fault is a tiny loss of paper to tip of top right corner.
