Inside has an article: "Pitcairn's Island" which is a accounting of what happened since the Bounty mutineers had settled on the island. It begins: "The history of this little island--a tree enbosomed spot in the Pacific--is an interesting episode in the world's great epic..." & continues to take over a full column to detail what transpired since.
Sixteen pages, 8 1/4 by 12 inches, very nice condition.
As noted in Wikipedia, this title: "...(was) one of the most widely-circulated magazines in the United States...Devoted primarily to politics...considered an important source for the history of the period."
