1939 Volume 1 Issue 1 of Ken Magazine, the exceptional political men's magazine, edited by the founder of Esquire. This attractive issue is filled with editorials, political cartoons, and photography that take a critical look at the impending war on America and a chilling commentary on Japan. The statement from the editor, which appears on the table of contents beginning with Vol.2 No.5., reads that the "...editorial aim is to give unhampered and unbiased demonstration of whatever dangers threaten this our democracy from without and within..." There are excellent, legendary compelling photographs from Edward J. Steichen that chronicles the plight of the American farmer during the great depression. This is the first time his photographs appear in publication.
