Book Condition: Very Good condition


The Spur touted itself as "a magine of the good things in life" and it was, even during the Depression, This issue covers a lot of ground, including polar exploration trips, the national celebration of the Walking Horse; Women amateurs in tennis, county fairs, King George VI sportsman, safari to the Belgian Congo, art at the Metropolitan Museum, and alcohol and why it would never be outlawed. The magazine is oversized at 10" x 14" with 56 pages. Major ads are for the Sherry Netherlands Hotel, the Plaza Hotel and Jamaica. The magazine is clean and tightly bound with two small tears, one to the outer back cover and the other to the page before it, both mended by me with non-browning, almost invisible archival tape. The only other fault is toning to the margins of the pages. Otherwise very nice
