 An important, expensively produced monthly outdoor magazine, profusely illustrated with photographs. Edited by G. O. Shields. ULS lists three titles of the same name, one beginning as Amateur Sportsman, another as Playground, all of which eventually merged into a final form entitled Recreation. This magazine is the origin of the title. Two issues in the teens have rare color cover illustrations by Norman Rockwell (see Moffatt).
