Petruccelli, Antonio (cover illus). Richard Edes Harrison (illus).
NY. Time Fortune. 06- 1937.
June 1937 complete issue of magazine, profusely illustrated in color and black and white, folio, color pictorial paper wrappers as issued. The cover is in very good condition with just a little crease to the outer lower corner and little stain to upper left corner and tiny spot in image (only noticable on very close examination). The interior of the magazine has suffered water damage to the lower right corner throughout with some loss to sheets. The cover is in very good condition (as noted) with good color and would look very handsome framed. The cover illustration is the iconic illustration of ticker tape (used to transmit stock price information over telegraph lines) by Antonio Petrucelli. Many interesting articles in this beautiful publication, plus elegant color and black and white advertisements. Articles include one on Wall Street illustrated over four pages in black and white with drawings of buildings on the north and south sides of Wall Street with major tenants marked by floor - a who's who of American business. This is by Richard Edes Harrison whose work as a mapmaker would be a powerful cultural influence during World War II. Founded by Henry Luce (the co-founder of Time magazine in 1923), Luce declared of Fortune magazine that "American business has importance - even majesty - so the magazine in which we are able to interpret it will look and feel important - even majestic."
