Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Minimum Bid: $200.00
Sold Price: $708.05 (includes buyer's premium)


Scarce copy of Mechanix Illustrated magazine from September 1945, 6.5 x 9.5, 162 pages, with the front cover featuring a brilliant color depiction of a large rocket with workers and spotlights all around, text in lower left reading: "16 Pages In Full Color—Rocket To The Moon." The magazine is highlighted by an article by acclaimed science writer Willy Ley entitled "Rocket to the Moon," with synopsis reading: "The ever-fascinating problem of space travel to the moon is examined factually and scientifically by expert Willy Ley, and illustrated with full color paintings by Chesley Bonestell." In very good to fine condition, with instances of wear and tape-repaired tears to spine, index page still attached but pulled free from staple binding, and some separation to upper portion of magazine jacket; the covers and interior pages remain in crisp, clean condition. From The Bill Lende Collection.
