* SS La Provence II - armed merchant cruiser

The front page has a nice banner headline: "1000 ARE SAID DROWNED" with subhead. (see) Nice for display. Surprisingly this issue is in good condition being from the "wood pulp" era. Very hard to find issues that are not totally fragile from this era in paper. Rare as such.
Incomplete issue containing the first 10 of 14 pages, small library stamp within the masthead, a little irregular along the spine, generally very nice.
