Lot x 3 Aviation Magazines.

3 issues, each c. 26-32 pages. Text in English. Illustrated throughout.
Nice lot of 3 early 20th century magazines with pleasing visual content, each with a dirigible airship cover and/ or contents inside.
Bindings remains clean, tight, and sound, various mostly small signs of age, 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 lot 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, and displays a pleasing age patina.
Lot 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 lot survives. This lot is not new- it is old and has been handled by different owners in the past.
Magazines Measure c. 9 1/2" H x 6 1/2" W.
