Young America: The National News Weekly for Youth.
Published May 8th, 1936, United States.
14 pages plus wrappers. Text in English. Illustrated throughout. Nice assortment of dated advertising as well, often illustrated.
Rare early 20th century American juvenile news magazine with pleasing visual content and a bold dirigible cover. Also has a cartoon page.
Binding remains tight and sound, various mostly small signs of age, short edge splits and nicks along spine and edges, time and handling, nothing offensive or major. Overall a nice looking example.
Small age flaws or defects include possible random old creasing, edge chipping, small light old staining, etc. Overall entirely acceptable example of what is likely a scarce survival. The pictures give a very good sense of how the item survives.
Virtually all periodicals of this era are somewhat scarce today as loose complete issues. Like most random survivals of old periodical printing, any specific example (like this one) is likely among a relative handful still extant. As each decade goes back from 1950, the rate of scarcity for any specific magazine or paper item increases noticeably.
Text block remains overall clean, newsprint type paper so inherently a bit fragile, displays a pleasing age patina.
Magazine remains attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique periodical survives. This item is not new- it is old and has been handled by different owners in the past.
