The cover art of these magazines scream "come hither!" They're bold, colorful and graphically sensational. I was at an auction which had six boxes of them.To say they were a hit is an understatement -- they sold in a frenzy for more money than they should have. I got the last box, which was as good as the rest, but at the end of the frenzy. There's much to read here about homes and gardens with gorgeous full color ads for house items -- roofs, tiles, paints etc.. One of the more interesting stories is about the scissor craft of silhouette making and William Henry Brown who long ago snipped out beautiful images. Other articles cover peony walks, Holland bulbs, wisteria, Pompeiian gardens, house renovations, a well appointed desk, china services on display in Paris, architecture, stone versus stone masonry and much more. The magazine is oversized at 10" x 12-1/2" and is an inch thick. SHIPS FOR $2 IN THE U.S.
