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." This issue is clean and tightly bound, but as you can see, a previous owner trimmed off the overhang of the yapped edges-- a common reaction when they develop chips and tears. Magazine offers great ads, fiction and articles The best of the latter includes a piece about the Carroll family of Viriginia (Charles Carroll); and two back to back articles that almost share the same title -- first, Types of Fair Women and then Types of Modern War Ships. I guess they're both called She, so why not? There's also tons of stuff on the actors and actresses of the day, as well as a piece on current artists. with portraits. Altogether fun!
