Galaxy Science Fiction.

Galaxy Science Fiction was a digest-size science fiction magazine, the creation of noted editor H. L. Gold. Begun as a monthly in October 1950, the magazine varied between monthly, bimonthly and eventually irregularly-issued status at different times during its 30+ year run. In 1980, a single issue (July 1980) was produced in a standard magazine format rather than a digest, but with no newsstand distribution, Galaxy ceased publication that same year. (Information courtesy of Wikipedia).

Many issues of Galaxy were published virtually unchanged in the UK - although out of order and with a different numbering system. These included all those with Jack's cover illustrations - I have been able to acquire copies of all these issues.

A series of 15 Galaxy magazines were published in Germany in 1958-59. I have acquired a copy of no. 6, with Jack's illustration (credited) from the September 1956 US issue on the cover. More information available here.
