Godey was the final word on fashion in its day. At the time this specific issue came out the company had been publishing it for 42 years! I've had several Godey's but I don't recall ever seeing so many fold-outs in a single issue. Here we have three -- the full color fashion plate which is especially pretty, a drawing of a dinner party, and a black and white fashion accessory page which is two-sided -- more pretty things on the reverse. One of the most interesting articles is about the health dangers of binding corsets too tightly. The magazine is clean and tightly bound :-), but as you can see from the photos, the yapped edges have been clipped off the cover which is not uncommon given how easily they tear due to the overhang. The magazine measures 6-1/2"x10".
