Ken magazine launched on April 7, 1938 via the founders of Esquire, but it lasted just a scant two years with two issues a month. It was political and controversial, so much so that Ernest Hemingway stopped writing for it after 14 issues. He's here in this issue though with an article titled Good Generals Hold the Line. The magazine is oversized at 10" x 13-1/2" with 86 pages. Other articles include the price of a debut for young women, Microbes Join the Army, Safe Government Broadcasting, Prelude To American Fascism, a nice article about author, Jack London, and more.

Very handsome copy of the second issueof Ken magazine. I also have the first one and it's on here at this writing. Ernest Hemingway hds been demoted from editorship to contributor which I suspect he could not care less about. His article in this issue is titled, "Dying Well or Badly". The whole issue is pretty much focused on the dangerous atmosphere in Europe. Other articles include: What Price English Justice; The Secret Fuse Under Mexico; Fascism's New World Thrust; Mussolini vs. His Past; Inside the Queerest Shipwreck; Norway, The Next Belgium; and Bidding the Theatre Guild Goodbye.

Very supple paper and very few small faults to include a tiny tear to side edge of front cover which I repaired on the back with a piece of almost invisible archival tape and a flat superficial crease to upper front cover. Magazine is oversized at 10-3/4" x 13-1/2" with a strong concentration on the news from England, Spain, Germany, Morocco, and Panama.
