The top of the front page has a one column heading: "A TERRIFIC BATTLE" with subheads. (see) 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.
Complete with 8 pages, a few small library stamps near the top of the front page, a few small binding holes along the spine, generally very nice.
