1936 POPULAR SCIENCE MAGAZINE Back Issue - Futuristic Ship - $10 (Springfield, VA)

For sale is a January 1936 edition of POPULAR SCIENCE MAGAZINE, Volume 128, no 1. Cover features a futuristic ship built on submarine pontoons. A cool science and technology focused magazine with articles on "Skyscrapers Torn down from the Ground Up"; American Flyers Lead the World in Air Records; Mysterious Diseases Baffle Medical Science"; "Did Exploding Meteors Dig the Craters on the Moon?"; and others. Magazine has interesting adverts for the 1936 Oldsmobile; Buck Rodgers Toy Castings; Flexible Flyer; New Royal Typewriter; Tums; and Charles Atlas Body Building. Includes an Amelia Earhart promoted motor scooter. Magazine is complete with all 112 pages but the front cover is mostly torn from spine, some soiling and edge wear consistent with age. Overall fair condition for magazine older than 75 years. Magazine measures 8 1/2 inches by 11 1/2 inches and would frame well. A great ephemera collectible.
