Axelrod of New Jersey was the Superintendent of Highfields Residential Group Center in Hopewell in the 70s (a state institution for "delinquent" youths). He was also a renowned expert in sexual deviancies and criminal issues related to children.
There's a fascinating history to all of this which I will include below, but let's get to the condition. They kind of send shivers down my spine to hold because they feel new. Even the earliest issue is crisp and mostly clean, although please look at the pictures because the cover of the first and second issues do show some flaking/tearing.
Overall Very white pages, all of the books have their original subscription inserts inside where there was one (as far as I can tell). No pages are marked in any way. They are like new with the exception of any moisture they may have taken in. I don't see much, except on the back cover of the earliest issue there is some discoloring.The rest are basically perfect. These were stored out of the light, in a file folder, in a basement, since publication.
I'm not sure anyone has these in this condition. From the One Archives Foundation.

His archives would later move to a storefront space in Hollywood, becoming the National Gay Archives, and later, the International Gay & Lesbian Archives, to reflect the growing scope of the collections.
