Physical Characteristics and/or Technical Requirements

Staples have been removed from both publications. The magazine Ronald Reagan includes a hand-coloured collage illustration originally adhered to the inside back cover from which it has become unattached as the glue used has dried over time - now held in place by an acid-free transparent sleeve. Also, there are two small tears at the top and bottom of the central fold of the magazine's cover.
