The Illustrated London News. Saturday, April 29, 1939. No. 2714, vol. 104. [New York World's Fair cover story]

New York: The International News Company, 1939. Pp.695-766 + 4p., about 75 pages total. Softbound magazine (the original) in 14x10 inch color wraps, coated paperstock, staplebound with profuse sepia, b&w, tinted and colorwork throughout, mostly rotogravure; complete issue without any excisions or ownership or other markings. Externally a good-only copy: staples a little rusted with edge somewhat worn, mild external grubbiness; internally very good. Exceptionally clear photo-reproduction of Fair (includes a half-page aerial view in colors), ancient choo choo trains, modern German battleships, Hitler and fascistica (with swastikas "photoshopped" as it were, for emphasis), movie reviews with production stills, a great variety of ads including topnotch autos, and..some boring stuff.
