Look and Learn Magazine - 57 Issues

£140.00

Product description

Look and Learn was a British weekly educational magazine for children published by Fleetway Publications Ltd from 1962 until 1982. It contained educational text articles that covered a wide variety of topics from volcanoes to the Loch Ness Monster; a long running science fiction comic strip, The Trigan Empire; adaptations of famous works of literature into comic-strip form, such as Lorna Doone; and serialised works of fiction such as The First Men in the Moon.

There are two folders of magazines together with a number of loose issues.

Folder 1: Issue No. 1 (20 January 1962) to Issue No. 26 (14 July 1962)
Folder 2: Issue No. 27 (21 July 1962) to Issue No. 52 (12 January 1963) EXCEPT for Issue No. 49 which is missing.

Loose Issues:
No. 55 (2 February 1963)
No. 56 (9 Feb 1963)
No. 58 (23 Feb 1963)
No. 61 (16 March 1963)
No. 66 (20 Apr 1963)
No. 76 (29 June 1963)

The folders show signs of shelf and one of the folders has some cracking along the spine. The magazines themselves show signs of rubbing along the page edges and along the spine. In Issue No. 3 and Issue No. 34 the centre page is partly loose. Issue 76 has a 6-inch tear to the back cover. For their age, they are, overall, in very good condition.
