Anyone know anything about this?

Does anyone have a copy of the August 1956 issue of "American Helicopter" so I can get a better scan???

FYI:

Stefan Apostolescu (later, Steve Postelson) founded the Apostolescu Universal Helicopter Co., Inc. in the 1940s and worked in Hicksville, New York (on Long Island). Apostolescu’s first helicopter design was named the “Helimobile.” It was a coaxial design, with twin, two-bladed rotors, over a very large bus-like fuselage.

I found 17 patents (!) but they were not all that informative about the man or his unfinished machine.

Thanks!
Mike.
