Highlights Magazine August/september 1962 (volume 17, Issue Number 7):
As everyone knows these softcover magazines were made for children to read and use so right away the survival rate becomes very low. Add in all the parents who have thrown the magazines in the trash when their kids became teens or went away to college and the others which just rotted away from not being stored right and you get an idea how scarce many of these older issues become, especially the ones before 1970. These weren't made to last 40, 50 or 60 years so finding any that are in nice shape and haven't been cut to pieces or filled with writing can be a bit of a challenge!
17, NO. 7.
