Beautiful issue that's pristine inside and out. No mailing label, no names or writing and very little defect. What there is is miniscule -- just a few small spots of edge wear. Oversized at 10" x 13 -1/4". 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. He's here with an article titled A Program For U.S. Realism in which he predicted WWII. The main article illustrated on the cover is Folding the Big Tent, a story about a Scranton, PA. showdown between the owners of a circus and the roustabouts who performed in it. Other topics include The Gestapo in the United States; Death of Democracy (1803); and Cotton Exploded in Dixie. Plus, of course, all Ken extras, especially the photographs.
