This post war Fortune magazine from July 1946 has 230 wonderful pages of graphs, charts and articles about the state of the USA and the world ranging from the management of the New York Yankee baseball team to the introduction of penicillin and other new antibiotic drugs. Besides the colorful advertisements of the 1946 Studebaker, Grace Shipping Lines, TACA Airways, Parker Pen and many others, there is an ad for National City Bank of New York with a reproduction of a painting, "Plantation in Sao Paulo" by Rockwell Kent. Articles in this issue were: The U.S. Foreign Service; General Tire on the Loose; Red Star Rising: Charles Luckman (Lever's American boy); Medicine from Earth (the new antibiotics); U.S Debt - 1946 (Reduce it now!); Morris Motors, LTD (the Henry Ford of Great Britain, and British Cars of 1946); article that details Larry McPhail's management of the New York Yankee baseball team and shows the front of the old Yankee Stadium); Adam Smith (the patron Saint of Freedom). These old Fortune Magazines are not only beautifully designed, but are filled with information for research as well entertainment. This large 10-1/2" x 13" issue is a former library copy with light library stamps scattered on a few of the inside pages. Its spine is skewed with some light foxing on last page and tanned page edges, but the complete and colorful magazine is in very good condition with no tears, and only a hint of soil from age. Start a collection, add to your library, or give this as a gift for a connoisseur of ephemera! Thank you for looking.
