Albion, Pa. American Air Mail Society, October 1935 (volume 7, number 1). Octavo, single issue, pictorial gray wrappers printed in orange and black, stapled. Includes "America's 1st Rocket Mail Flight," a 3-page illustrated article by aerophilately specialist F. W. Kessler. Although both rockets exploded, some mail was recovered from America's first rocket mail flight which took place at Holmes Airport, Astoria, Long Island, NY, 22 September 1935, conducted by "chief engineer" William S. Sykora who built the rockets, assisted by Donald A. Wollheim. For some reason the illustration of the two rocket stamps on page 13 was cut out and reattached with tape, otherwise a very good copy. Although not so identified, this was Wollheim's copy. (#163925).
