1 "This Is the Draped Dress" Matted Best & Co. Ad Woman's Home Companion 1922
Woman's Home Companion Magazine 1922 Very Good 
I am not usually attracted to most of the matted and/or framed advertising available, but this one caught my eye. The monotone art is not only elegant, but evocative of the Jazz Age -- the world of Scott & Zelda Fitzgerald and the artistic women of the Left Bank. As indicated on the reverse side, the image comes from the Picture Section of Woman's Home Companion magazine July, 1922. Both it and its mat are very clean. The art is the creation of John La Gatta (1894-1977), an illustrator best remembered for his work featuring women. The overall size with mat is 12"x13" while the image itself is 9"x9-3/4"

Charm: The Magazine for Women Who Work August, 1952
2 Charm: The Magazine for Women Who Work August, 1952
Street & Smith Publications 1952 August 1952 soft cover Good-plus 
Charm is not a magazine you see too much, probably because there were fewer women in the workplace in 1952. I wasn't really too surprised that work played a small role in the magazine's content other than the clothes one wore to the office. But -- wow! -- what sophisticated clothes these were. I always think of poodle skirts and Donna Reed shirtwaists when I think of the 50's, but not for these women. High fashion! The other topics include the predictable -- child care and what to fix for dinner. But if you're a fashion junkie, this one is fabulous! Clean and tightly bound with a few creases to cover. Pages pristine.

Coast to Coast Fashion Awards By the E.F. MacDonald Company
3 Coast to Coast Fashion Awards By the E.F. MacDonald Company
Dayton, Ohio E.F. MacDonald Company 1962 soft cover Very Good 
This oversized catalogue is a monument to 60's clothing for men, women and children. It's clean as a whistle inside and out and measures 12" square. The photography is much more interesting than usual, as in addition to the regular shots of models, there are many large full color plates of vignettes where people are modeling the clothes against colorful backgrounds. Initially I thought this was a retail outlet, but it is not. E.F. MacDonald was an incentive company associated most commonly with Plaid Stamps. This catalog, however, makes no reference to stamps. Each item bears a number, but there are no prices and no stamp requirements stated. It seems likely that there must have been a correlating sheet laid-in with info telling how many books of stamps were needed. Unpaginated, but I counted 31.

Cowell & Hubbard:The Couturier Collection (Surprise Cover)
6 Cowell & Hubbard:The Couturier Collection (Surprise Cover)
Cleveland, Ohio Cowell & Hubbard Unknown (Presumed 80's) Unknown Card cover Very good condition 
The cover of this trade catalog presented by Cowell and Hubbard, Cleveland, Ohio's premiere jewelry store from 1861. It looks like the title box is falling off and the cover is wrinkled. But, no! It's flat and smooth -- the design tricked the eye. What also makes this catalog so interesting is the pairing of expensive fine jewelry with couture clothing designed by Bill Blass, Adele Simpson, Ralph Lauren and others. Catalog measures 5-1/2" x 8-1/2" with 72 pages. There's also an order blank which folds into an envelope -- unused. Unfortunately, there is no date and no clues. I came to the conclusion that it might be from the 80's because of a long sleeved wedding dress with a hat.

Harper's Bazar December 15, 1988 (Embroidery, Fashion)
7 Harper's Bazar December 15, 1988 (Embroidery, Fashion)
Harper Brothers 1888 Vol. XXI No. 50 soft cover Very good 
Though this is actually a magazine, it's printed in newspaper fashion and yet remains remarkably good. There are few tiny edge tears and a chip from the side of page one, but I have been able to mend all tears at folds with non-browning archival tape which is nearly invisible. When opened the magazine measures 12"x16-1/2". The two brown stickers on the face are the mailing labels to De Soto, Missouri. This is the Christmas issue so there are holiday stories, but also an article about embroideries at the London Arts and Crafts Exhibition as well as two pages devoted to embroidery patterns. There's also an article about fashions from New York and a page of art showing them.

McCall's Magazine January 1914 (Fashion Plates)
9 McCall's Magazine January 1914 (Fashion Plates)
New York The McCall Company 1914 Vol. XLI No. 5 soft cover 
I love, love, LOVE these early issues of McCalls. I had some more, but sold them all at the Cleveland Book and Paper show last fall and now I'm down to just this one. But this one is a pretty thing indeed, especially those pages of fashion plates (see photo two). The format was smaller in those days, so this magazine measures just 8"x11", nowhere near the size it grew to later, especially during the 30's. Even in the early days McCall's kept true to form with articles on housekeeping, sewing, fashion, and ways for women to make money (in this issue it's millinery and hostessing). Other features are children, food and cooking, and fiction. Very attractive lay-out and lots of fun ads. One is for Postum, the coffee substitute, and is displayed in full color on the back cover.

McCall's Magazine November, 1940 (Ku Klux Klan, Lenore Mattingly Weber)
10 McCall's Magazine November, 1940 (Ku Klux Klan, Lenore Mattingly Weber)
New York McCall Corporation 1940 
Did you grow up reading the Beany Malone books? If so, the author, Lenore Mattingly Weber, is in this issue with a short story. Her name jumped right off the cover for me! Other items of interest are an article about the actvities of the Ku Klux Klan, a story by John P. Marquand, and preparations for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Oh, and of course those elegant fashion plates. The magazine is clean and tightly bound with a small tear to top and bottom of spine, both of which I repaired with almost invisible archival tape. Other than that there's a few tiny bits of edge wear and mild soil to light portions of front and back. I did, however, clean it with a document pad. The magazine is oversized at 11" x 13-3/4" and has 146 pages. Shios for $2 in the U.S.

Cute cover with Janet Gaynor and Shirley Temple.

Only fault is a crease to lower corner of front cover.

16 Postcard Fred Harvey's Lunch Room Union Station, Chicago (1920's)
Fred Harvey 1920's Very Good Condition 
This card is unused, so no dates written by sender and no post mark. The only clue to find a date here is the pink cloche hat on the lady in the foreground next to the two men. The cloche hat is a Roaring Twenties fashion favorite. Fred Harvey was the restaurant king of his day. This one was beautiful and located in the Chicago train station. Card is clean and nice and will arrive in a brand new plastic sleeve.

Real Photo Postcard Stylish Edwardian Woman
17 Real Photo Postcard Stylish Edwardian Woman
Very good 
This was a woman who took fashion seriously! Here she is looking regal in full high style Edwardian regalia with gloves, a feathered hat, a lace collar and a nosegay of flowers pinned to her bodice. The card shows no stamps and no writing -- never mailed -- and is very clean and nice save a small crease to the upper right corner. It was pr9inted on CyKo photographic paper which dates it from 1904 to the 20's, but her clothes say it all.

18 Sears Catalog Fall and Winter 1974
U.S.A. Sears and Roebuck Company 1974 Fall and Winter 1974 Soft cover Good condition 
Amazing how much has changed in our world since the selection of products in this huge catalog of 1559 pages. I remember this time because I got I married in the 70's. I remember telling my friends who were also getting married that some day we deserves a do over! Every item we got for our homes was brown, orange, avacado or harvest gold. Believe it! The catalog is great because it's a domestic archive of fashion, tools, tableware, furniture, sporting goods, appliances and much, much more. The catalog is clean and tightly bound with some creasing to cover which I have ironed flat and a small stain to lower front cover.

All in black and white. A few pages of biography and commentary at front.

20 Stage The Magazine of After Dark Entertainment November, 1936 (George Kaufman, Cole Porter, Irving Berlin)
New York Stage Publishing Company 1936 soft cover Very good Condition 
Very nice entertainment magazine devoted to nighttime pleasures including dining and dancing, but especially theatre. It's oversized at 10"x14" and has 116 pages. Lots to read, but I think the main story is Men At Work, a lengthy look at musical greats George Kaufman, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin. Another fun p0iece is about going to Russia to make the rounds of the Russian theaters. Also of interest are the story of the musical White Horse Inn,T he Alchemy of Music, and the New York Angle on World Wide Fashion. The subscription card is unused and still bound it and there is no mailing label.
