About this Item: American Heritage, 1963. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. Title Horizon Magazine Author W H Hale (editor) Publisher American Heritage Date March 1963 Description This is volume I, issue 4, of a magazine. Unusually for a magazine it has hard covers. There are 112 pages and it measures 23 x 31 x 1 cm and weighs 700 g. As is standard in all issues of this magazine there is a large paste down illustration on the front cover. This refers to one of the articles within the issue. Above the illustration there is a gilt title and below is the date of the issue. Bibliography Like all magazines there is always a set of independent articles and in every issue that range of topics is wide. It was not a specialist magazine although eventually it did sub-title itself as a Magazine of the Arts. However Arts was interpreted in the widest possible way. It encompassed architecture, design, classical and graphic art, archaeology, music, biography, history, science, fashion, the contemporary scene, the environment, language, philosophy, humour. It included items from the highways and byways of the cultures of all nations and regions, past and present - and future. The selections and their presentation are standing the test of time well. The articles were written by men and women who knew their subject well and wrote well on these subjects. They wrote on the - completely valid - assumption that their readers were like themselves, like you and I, that is, intelligent and curious. The reading is always accessible, with nothing pompous or pretentious, but often witty and always interesting These articles are also always very well illustrated, sometimes the illustrations themselves running to several pages. It is well designed and very well printed. Well, after that bout of wellness (wellfulness?), perhaps it is as well to let well alone. Except for this: as a miscellany of both the highways and byways of .culture this is the finest ever. It has not been equalled. It will not be surpassed. It is the best magazine of its type ever published. It is no longer published . Contents The cover of Issue 4 of 1959 is the water colour Personnages devant .le Soleil by Jean Miro. The contents of this issue are: Misuses Of The Past; Ten Authors In Pursuit Of One Subject; The World's Most Daring Builder; A Memorandum: From Julius Caesar To Robert Moses; The Two Worlds Of Alexander William Carlos Williams, M. D.; The Rules Of Fashion Cycles; The Debut Of The Picture Interview; Miro; What Not To See In Europe; The Tree Of Coole; "The Greatest Wit In England"; Ruth Orkin's New York; When Forgery Becomes A Fine Art; Shopping With Kafka; The Dangers Of Nonconformism; Her Revenge: A Short Story; Clouds On The Horizon; The Elephant Of Paris Condition The covers are bright and clean, free from any stains or marks. There is very slight bumping. The binding is firm. All pages are present and are free from tears and creases, marks or stains. The overall condition is near fine. Postage and Packing The price quoted is for postage within the UK: small parcel , 2nd class by Royal Mail. . International postage will necessarily require an additional charge. Please contact to discuss, preferred option. See also Other volumes. Seller Inventory # 170
