Morgan,

My issue is the May - June, 1938 one; the picture is not of my issue. But the cover is identical, except for the date.

Thanks all for your comments.

"There is also a small mention/reference to the Hobbit in the 1938 July-August Issue on Page 232."

Thanks, Remy - I'd missed that reference. 'Real literature' as Prof. Pedersen said.

Just wondering does anyone know anything about a Red Slipcase that contains the 6 Horn Book Magazines from 1938?

I have attached photos.

The slipcase does not seem to fit the magazines perfectly and I wonder was the slipcase privately made (possibly by a reference library?) or would it have been issued by the magazine publisher?

Any information would by greatly appreciated?

Looking at the pictures, the label would appear to have been produced by the Magazine Publisher and not by anyone else.

I expect that the publishers sold identical slipcases for all the different magazines they produced except for the labels affixed to them, which is why they don't seem to fit very well in the box.

Thanks for your thoughts Trotter. Much Appreciated.

I too thought the Printed Label made it more likely that it was issued by the Publisher but then when I saw the fit of the magazines into the slipcase, I was not so sure.

I did have a search on the web (including the Horn Book Magazine's own webiste) but could not find any information. I am sure I will eventually find a definitive answer.

Many Thanks Again.
