Pictured above is ARGOSY for August 1960. I purchased it at a City Wide Garage Sale in 2012.

ARGOSY was another long-lived title that began its' life as a pulp magazine printing adventure fiction. Over the years, it slowly changed into a magazine size and format featuring a mix of fact and fiction. The cover painting on this one is of Captain Edward L. Beach, author of the classic WWII submarine novel RUN SILENT, RUN DEEP (which was turned into a terrific 1958 Robert Wise directed film starring Burt Lancaster, Clark Gable and, believe it or not, Don Rickles).
