Does this look familiar? No? Well, it's actually the progenitor of the Life Magazine you do know which began under Luce in the 30's. But the original showed up in the late 1800's and by the time this issue came out in July, 1927 Charles Dana Gibson was president of the publishing company -- his name's on the masthead. Yes, he's THAT Gibson, the one who drew all the pretty girls known still as the Gibson Girls. Back then Life was about politics, social commentary, and humor with the emphasis on humor.All of these magazines are fun, but the charm of this issue is a piece written by Dorothy Parker who believed "men never make passes at girls who wear glasses." Nice ad too for Society of American Florists as well as one for Coke and Chrysler. The magazine measures 8-1/2"x11" and has 36 pages. There's a little chipping on the spine and two small tears to bottom edge of back cover. Repaired by me with non-browning, almost invisible archival tape.
