The Aldine Library - 1st Nov 2017

A really rare chance has arisen to get your hands on copies of The Aldine Invention, Travel, & Adventure Library. Our boss has just bought a collection of these scarce magazines. 

These were published from about 1880 to 1900. They have fantastic illustrations on the front cover, as you can see from the attached pictures. They often feature stories about flying machines, submarines, electric powered tanks, electric cars and so on. If you consider the publishing dates, then that is a pretty impressive feat. They are full of adventure, travel, inventions and short stories and are billed as outdoing Jules Verne!.
