Originally a society magazine started in 1861. In the early 50s, editor Jocelyn Steven bought the magazine in 1958 and shifted the format, content and readership to turn Queen into one of the most iconic publications of its time. Working with Beatrix Miller, Norman Parkinson and later Helmut Newton, Queen became a definitive bible for all things 60s.

Very Good condition for a magazine of this age with some light marks and creases  (see images). The centre staples have some rust which is normal for this age of magazine.
