Soviet Union Magazine - 1967: "Special Issue Devoted to the Great October Socialist Revolution of 1917"

£21.00

Product description

Soviet Union is the last of the extravagant photo journals of the Soviet era. The editors made clear that Soviet Union, which commenced with its March 1950 issue, was "in place of the magazine USSR in Construction", which ceased its publication in December 1949.
Through the 1950s, Soviet Union was printed in its larger size approximating that of USSR in Construction. After this, the format for the magazine became smaller, then glossy and eventually kitschy, until it ceased publication in 1990.
This issue is in English. It contains all manner of interesting things, which would especially appeal to those interested in the history of the Soviet Union, or Communism and Communist propaganda in general. For example, included are facts and figures of the USSR's economic growth, life-expectancy growth, even the growth in the number of farm tractors.
This authentic copy of the magazine is in good condition, considering its age. The front cover is creased at the corners, and the top right-hand corners of all the pages have a slightly 'nibbled' quality, but the colours of the photographs are still bright, and the pages are clean and unmarked.
