London: Courier Magazine, 1939. First Edition. Spiral Binding. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Near Fine / No Jacket. Item #004348
8vo., 194pp. Fully illustrated cosmopolitan-minded travel magazine, right on the cusp of World War Two with foldout of the armies of the world (noting the superiority of Germany). Advertising Fact, Fiction, Art, and Satire, this magazine has the latest on film, books, and yes, "Weighing In For War." With a two-page color reproduction of W.P. Firth's "Derby Day," and caricatures of Joe Kennedy, Roosevelt, Gary Cooper, and others. A wonderfully English window to the war-threatened world. In illustrated wraps, with plastic (1939?) spiral binding. Other than a racists story purported to be from America, most of the humor is fairly sophisticated.
