– period photographs of Frank Hampson, Frank Bellamy, Ron Embleton & others.

Interesting topics featuring: 
– Major Events in the Life of Eagle;
– Publishing Chronology;
– a checklist of Eagle Articles published during 1950 – 1962;
– Eagle Roll of Honour
– Spinoff Publications from Eagle & more.

This Souvenir Brochure comes with a loose 4 page Guide to the Eagle Convention 1980.

48 pages including covers plus 4 page guide – Soft cover – Black & White – 8 x 10 inches (21cm x 25cm).

This brochure is in excellent (unread & almost as new) condition: minor scuffmarks, tight binding, complete/ clean/ white & unmarked pages.
