I am so excited to have found a few of these journals, as the editor is Dorothy Miner who was a noted scholar on medieval illuminated manuscripts, taught by none other than the great Belle Da Costa Greene who acquired and maintained J. Pierpont Morgan's exquisite library. The magazine is Volume II, but it's a stand alone. All it means is it's the first of four issues of the year. The journal measures 9"x 11-1/4" and has 109 pages printed on quality coated paper. It's tightly bound and very clean with just some light foxing to first and last pages as typical. It's beautifully illustrated with black and white photographs and covers numerous topics including, Alberto Socio and his Group, the Legend of Paris and Helen, an Egyptian Stela of the Early 18th Dynasty, Notes on Enamels by Pierre Raymond, a Gothic ivory mirror case and more. The only author I recognized is Stephen V. Grancsay, who headed the Arms and Armor Collection of the New York Metropolitan Museum. His article is titled "Carved Gunstocks by Johann Michael Maucher".
