It's interesting how Munsey Magazine had a HUGE circulation and yet it's less well known than Century, Harper's and Frank Leslie's. I just got six issues though so am happy as a clam. Before I tell you about this one though here's a fun fact about Munsey -- it was considered a bit racy and some stores would not stock it due to its "undressed women and undressed statuary." But don't get too excited -- check out picture two! This issue is clean and tightly bound, but as you can see, there's some chipping to the bottom edge, thanks to the yapped edges which all but beg for this to happen. A previous owner trimmed off the overhang -- a common reaction. Great ads, fiction and articles await. The best of the latter include a piece on the Adams family (think Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams), a very nice look at the impressive homes of Virginia and an illustrated profile of Scottish-American sculptor J. Massey Rhind. There's also tons of stuff on the actors and actresses of the day with portraits. Altogether fun!
