McCall Kaumagraph Transfer Pattern No. 1308 Design for Braiding (Embroidery)
1 McCall Kaumagraph Transfer Pattern No. 1308 Design for Braiding (Embroidery)
Unknown McCall Unknown Very Good 
Though called a design for braiding, this is actually an embroidery transfer. There is no date on it, but I got it with a lot of other sewing items which were dated in the 1920's, so it's likely this comes from the same era. What's interesting about is that the design came in either yellow or blue ink. This one's a yellow, so if for some reason the buyer changed her mind about it she could remove it from wool or silk by rubbing with benzene, gasoline or carbona! The design is transferred with an iron and full instructions are on the back. Even unused it'a cool novelty for a sewing collection.

McCall's Magazine January 1914 (Fashion Plates)
3 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)
4 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.

McCall's Magazine May 1928 (Dorothy Parker, Zane Grey, Gene Stratton Porter), Parker, Dorothy
5 Parker, Dorothy McCall's Magazine May 1928 (Dorothy Parker, Zane Grey, Gene Stratton Porter)
The McCall Company Volume LV No. 8 soft cover Very Good 
Wow -- this one's packed with goodies! Not only is there an article about dogs by the great Dorothy Parker, but also a story by Zane Grey, an article about the life of Gene Stratton Porter and Part I of Kate Helm's Mary, Wife of Lincoln. And that doesn't even count the ten pages of slim 20's dresses and two more fashion pages for kids. Many more stories and some seriously fetching ads, especially a full page color one for Aberfoyle Fabrics. Gorgeous! The magazine is clean and nice with no mailing label. It's a big one measuring 10-1/2"x14". OVERSEAS ORDERS WELCOME, but postage will be higher due to size and weight. I will provide the exact amount when I know where you are and what item you want, then you can decide whether to proceed.

McCall's Magazine March, 1917, Reed, Myra G. (editor)
6 Reed, Myra G. (editor) McCall's Magazine March, 1917
New York, New York The McCall Company 1917 Vol. XLIV, No.7 soft covwer Very good condition 
Clean, tightly bound early McCall's magazine. As always with the issues from the 1900's, this one is beautiful. The only fault is some browning to spots at spine and a small bit of paper loss at top and bottom. The magazine covers a lot of topics -- fiction, cooking, fashion, baby care, tips for healthy hair, wood carving, and needlework including filet and embroidery, plus even more. The magazine measures 8" x 11-1/4" and has 114 pristine pages. The back cover shows a great ad for Palmolive soap. Other ads are the back are fun to read -- you'll recognize many companies which are still around including Burpee's Seeds, Colgate, Quaker Oats and O-Cedar.

McCall's Magazine June, 1938 Booth Tarkington, Color Fashion Plates, Tarkington Booth
7 Tarkington Booth McCall's Magazine June, 1938 Booth Tarkington, Color Fashion Plates
New York McCall's 1938 soft cover Very good 
Very special issue of this popular womens' magazine. Not only does it have part three of a serialized novel, Otherwise Kitty Swift, by Booth Tarkington, but also a glamorous wedding and fashion section. The clothes are gorgeous and are rendered in full color -- TEN pages with multiple images per page. There's also an article about what young people thought about war. Many color ads too. Huge format -- measures 11"x13-3/4" Magazine is very clean, but does have a few faults, none of which impinge on the contents. These include a few tiny edge tears to side of front cover all of which have been repaired by me with small pieces of invisible archival tape at back and a 3"x1/2" clip to margin at top back cover. Overall very nice. Many McCall's magazines from the period available, so let me know if you're looking for a specific issue.
