Lewisburg Federal Penitentiary—The Periscope (August 1940 prison zine)
The Periscope was the in-house news organ for Lewisburg federal penitentiary. Exceptional printing quality and curious articles/musings from men on the inside. This is first-person American history that remains woefully neglected by academia and popular culture alike.
This August 1940 issue was forgotten in a Pennsylvania law office closet for about 60 years, leading to a very finely preserved condition. Slight ink smudging on cover as pictured. Otherwise Near Fine. ~6.5" x 8.75"
