Boys' Life is the official youth magazine for the Boy Scouts of America. Published since 1911, it contains a proven mix of news, nature, sports, history, fiction, science, comics, and Scouting.
Date: April 1956
Publisher: Boy Scouts of America, Inc.
Condition: Cover is very fragile and almost completely split from spine. Cover had a good deal of wear, and there is tanning to the pages from age. Address label on cover. One page of the color section is separated, folded inside the magazine- that page is very tattered. The remainder of the magazine is still tightly bound. Condition acceptable considering it's age and that is was a young boy's magazine.
Magazines (regardless of age) that contain advertising may not be shipped media mail. The shipping rate is for priority shipping.
NOTE: If you are interested in more than one magazine, please contact me for shipping quote. Shipping will be discounted for multiple magazine purchases.
All of the vintage magazines I am listing were found at an estate sale. They were not kept with an eye towards preservation, so there is some wear and tear to them. Please contact me prior to purchase is you have any questions.
