Included are: Life, October 27, 1972, with a six-page feature “Dr. Land’s Latest Bit of Magic: A new Polaroid camera develops color pictures while you watch” (fair with cover wear and creases, a mailing label, and 4 cm cover splits at the top and bottom of the spine); Popular Science, January 1973, with a four-page article “Inside Story on the Pocket Polaroid SX-70 Camera: 10 Color Shots in 20 Seconds” (fair with cover and corner wear, rippling at the spine, a mailing label, and chips and wear on the spine, especially the tail end); and a scarce issue of Popular Photography, April 1937, with a 17-page feature, “Polaroid SX-70: The Facts Behind the Ballyhoo,” including “From the Inside Out,” “How the SX-70 Film Compares to Others,” and “The SX-70 as a Tool for Creativity” (fair with cover and corner wear, fingerprint smudging on the front cover, spine chips, and two coupons cut from single page at the back – no loss of articles). Despite condition issues, a good look at the SX-70 and the excitement it produced on its release. Life’s 1972 cover story of Land and his SX-70 brought the camera to the attention of a wide swath of Americans, and by 1973 several famous photographers were exhibiting work done with the device, including Robert Mapplethorpe, Charles Eames, and Eugene Richards.
