1 The American Spectator: A Literary Newspaper (Vol.I, Nos 1-7, 1932-33)
New York City The American Spectator Inc. 1932-1933 Volume I, Nos. 1-7 Soft cover Very good condition 
Aren't these handsome with their original colorful bands? The bands slip on and off, so not to worry about being able to read the articles. What's interesting also is the fact that these are the first ever issues. There are many voices here that you will recognize -- Theodore Dreiser, Eugene O'Neill, Clarence Darrow, Liam O'Flaherty, Louis Untermeyer, Sean O'Casey, Booth Tarkington, and more. Closed the papers measures 9" x 11-1/2". Only volume I shows some toning to front pages. NOTE -- this is not the political magazine of the same name.

The Cosmpolitan Magazine December, 1903 (Christmas Number), Barbour, Ralph Henry; Wharton, Edith
2 Barbour, Ralph Henry; Wharton, Edith The Cosmpolitan Magazine December, 1903 (Christmas Number)
1903 Vol. XXXVI, Number 2 Soft cover Very good 
I was so happy to find a copy of this magazine still hanging on to the overhang known as the yapped edge. They always get tiny tears, but some end up falling off in spots and then are clipped by the owner. This one has the tiny tears, but they've been repaired by me with discreet archival tape. This is a good issue too with two stories by well known authors -- "A Christmas Courtship" by Edith Wharton and illustrated by Rose Cecil O'Neill, the artist who gave us the kewpie doll; and "A Christmas Surrender" by Ralph Henry Barbour. Articles cover these topics: New York City's Wonders in 1909; Captains of Industry (Norton Goddard, Francis Henry Clergue); Zigzag Toboganning; home-made windmills in in Prairie States; and Zion The Capital of the Jewish Nation. Magazine measures 7" x 9-1/2" and is clean and tightly bound.

A Little Question in Ladies Rights (Art by Rose Cecil O'Neill, 1916), Fillmore, Parker H.
3 Fillmore, Parker H. A Little Question in Ladies Rights (Art by Rose Cecil O'Neill, 1916)
New York John Lane Company 1916 Second edition Hard cover Very good condition No DJ O'Neill, Rose Cecil 
This little book is charming. Two things caught my eye, the title and the little girl on the front. But when I opened the book and saw that the artist was Rose Cecil O'Neill I had to have it. Rose O'Neill was the woman who created the famous Kewpie Doll. It's a small book measuring just 5"x7-1/2" with clean green boards with that cute pictorial on the front board. Book shows virtually no wear -- just some light browning to gutter at half title page with one small spot. Otherwise very nice and not often seen.

The Cosmopolitan Magazine May, 1903 (Rose Cecil O'Neill,Henry Seton Merriman, Walker, John, Brisben (editor)
5 Walker, John, Brisben (editor) The Cosmopolitan Magazine May, 1903 (Rose Cecil O'Neill,Henry Seton Merriman
The Cosmopolitan Magazine Company 1903 Vol. XXXV, Number 1 soft cover Very Good Condition 
An amazingly nice issue of a popular magazine at the turn of the 20th century. No only is it clean and tightly bound, but it also retains its yapped edges and has the most pristine spine I have ever seen on a century old magazine. The main article is a story about the British Parcel Post and how it ran, but there are other more fetching topics such as "The Power and Beauty of Woman's Eyes", "Platonic Friendship" and "Society's Amateur Circuses." Plus there's pieces on the captains of industry of the day, an idea for equitable taxation and the teaching profession's hardships and rewards. The two most well-known contributions are illustrator Rose Cecil O'Neill, she of kewpie doll fame and Henry Seton Merriman who has a story here titled "Barlasch of the Guard." Magazine measures 6-3/4" x 9-1/2" and has 117 ages, plus many interesting ads at back.
