remarques: the Eagle Annual Number 1 was launched in 1951 for the year 1952,
building on the success of the comic which had been launched
in the April of the previous year (Eagle, a British comic book launched 1950);

the first series of Eagle Annuals ran from 1952 through to 1975,
there have been 24 binders from 1951 to 1975
there was also a second series running from 1983 through to 1992;
it was a kind of Reader's Digest for young people
with great strips, stories, articles, etc
>> similar to album des jeunes (sélection du Reader's digest),
voir section livre Jeunesse albums

this binder No. 6 Eagle Annual (printed in 1956) sees the Science section
mostly replaced by Engineering and more Adventure Strips
at the expense of less real life stories,
the models that you can build start to become
a lot more complex and detailed,
the inner and outer covers are now back
to being considered part of the page count

the binder consists of stories, adventure strips
(among them Dan Dare and riders of the range),
sport, real life adventures, hobbies,
engineering, humorous strips and various articles

selected highlights:
- Dan Dare's story entitled Operation Silence
- Harris Tweed takes a pleasure cruise
- learn about vertical take off aircraft
- mystify your friends with telepathy
- make a crystal set

Eagle Annual is not to be confused with Eagle
which was a British children's comics periodical,
first published from 1950 to 1969
and then in a relaunched format from 1982 to 1994,
it was founded by Marcus Morris, an Anglican vicar from Lancashire
