This is the progenitor of the Life Magazine that began in the 1930's. It debuted in the late 1800's as a humor magazine. By the time this issue came out it had adopted a sly commentary on politics and social issues. The president of the company was Charles Dana Gibson, he of the famous drawings of the pretty women who became known as Gibson girls. The second photo shows a lovely drawing by Gibson in this issue. The cover art is interesting too with a caption which reads "Dumbdora's Box" by Alice Harvey who later came to be an illustrator for the New Yorker Magazine. As the New Yorker was coming together Harold Ross wrote to Alice Harvey after seeing her work here to invite her to work for him too. Magazine measures 8-3/4" x 11-1/4" and has 36 pages. Beautiful color ads from Prudential and Lincoln cars. Staples have rusted a little and a newspaper clipping that had been left inside caused toning to one spread. Overall very nice though.
