The Booklovers Magazine May, 1903 (Jane Austen, charlotte Bronte, George Sands)
8 The Booklovers Magazine May, 1903 (Jane Austen, charlotte Bronte, George Sands)
Philadelphia, PA The Library Publishing Company 1903 soft cover Very good Vol. I, No. V 
In its day this was a very popular magazine. It's still popular with me, but I never seem to find many issues. This one covers the department stores of the day, a travel piece on taking a European vacation, replete with lots of full color illustrations and, --the best of all -- a long article about women novelists, Jane Austen, Charlotte Bronte and George Sands. All of them have stood the test of time and Jane is practically a rock star!The ads in this magazine are even fun to read, and not all of them are about books. There's wonderful ads about player pianos and phonographs --technology galore! Magazine is clean and tightly bound with a small dampstain at top edge of a few pages at front and a bit of edge wear. Overall, quite good.

The Theosophical Quarterly Vol. XXXV (Full run) 1937-38
12 The Theosophical Quarterly Vol. XXXV (Full run) 1937-38
New York The Theosophical Society 1937-38 soft cover Very Good to Good 
The Theosophical Quarterly Volume XXXV, Nos. 137,138,139,140; Published in 1937-38. Full set in good, clean condition with only one issue showing a fault which is a small bit of chipping to upper front corner of the cover just above the No. 140 on one issue. All magazines have clean pages made from very nice rag paper with no writing and no creases. The Theosophical Society was founded by Madame Helena Blavatsky, the first Russian woman to be naturalized as an American citizen. She began the group in 1875 with other like-minded friends and eventually moved to India where she started yet another branch. By the 1930's the society was going strong, despite some splintering after Madame Blavatsky's death in 1891. In fact, it was even popular in Ireland. Devotees of James Joyce's novel, Finnegan's Wake, will recognize Theosophical Society influences in the book. Among the topics here are cyclic laws in biology, prayer wheels, the importance of having a life purpose, psychic and noetic action, and a two-part series on Blavatsky herself. Not often seen in a full run.

Each issue has 16 pages. Also, along with the magazines are two much thinner issues of Life magazine, the very first issue which came out November 23, 1936 and a later one (no date) in full color, likely from 1960. These measure 2-1/4" x 3-1/4". Very desirable and very scarce.(Collector --Drawer I)
