This is the FULL-SIZE beauty!!! NOT the smaller format size, promotional issue.
Highlights: The overall color is excellent! Cream-off white reverse, and off-white pages. Interior color is crisp and above grade and pages. No major rips, tears, or water damage.
There are small defects, such as. Corner rounding, edge wear, spine creases. Small spine separation upper left corner. Small crease upper left hand corner, slight staple discoloration.
Note: the line across the top left quadrant is a utility line in the photograph, not a fold. The white specks in the upper left quadrant are "print defects", meaning some drop-out in. The printing blanket during printing process, so these are natural "press" defects. Overall condition is excellent when compared to other original Life Magazine 1st editions on the market!
It is an American classic; a solid investment potential for this classic magazine sure to increase in value over time. This is not the reprinted issues from 1950's or 1960's; there is a difference! Later reprints did NOT have the REG. Text in the lower left hand corner.
There are many reprints are out there; and of course. Those copies 25-30 years newer, look better. BUT, they are not a first edition from 1936!
If you think I should sell it for less, make me an offer! It is a very solid magazine with very few copies out there, period.
I think there's a lot of value here as an investment, and price. Must-have solid, foundation for any serious collection. Definitely a highlight item for your collection! If you have any specific questions.
