About this Item

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.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
