Tradition magazine

Tradition Magazine ran for about 10 years from 1964-74 and in that time published a total of 76 issues. I know this as I have a full bound set. It was advertised as the International Society of Military Collectors and for its time was very expensive at 15 shillings - 75p an issue- when Mil -Mod was 15p . It gave a lot of military artists/historians their start- such as Embleton and Fosten as well as publishing articles by the foremost writers of the day such as Young and JBR Nicholson . Also artists include JOB and Jack Ghirbal whose Napoleonic plates are superb It is absolutely stuffed with Uniform details and military history and later writers have frequently used it as a source. . There are even wargaming articles in it - most notably and early version of Grent's - The War Game.
 It has come to my notice that Tradition of London are selling off copies at a HUGE price of £16.00 an issue now I have some extras to sell but would not dream of asking that price- no I think about half that  is a fair price for such quality  with those I have without plates going for half again and a few where some of the plates are missing  counting with those that have none
 Prices for multiple purchases are negotiable any shipping will be charged at cost .
The complete list of those 88 spare magazines I have is below.
