This is like no magazine you have ever seen. It's about enjoying life in all its aspects. There are articles about letting go, stillness, walking, playing with light, the kindnes of strangers, 40 ways to spread kindness, small things worth savoring, life's backpack, where your stories belong, the power of paper, and more.

It measures 7" x 8-1/2" and has 128 pages. There a few little check marks in ink on some pages and a few underlines also in ink, but it's not bad and is kind of interesting to see what the checker thought was important. The articles are these: Sex, Family and the New Left: Anti-Feminism As A Political Force; American Leninism in the 1970's; Industrial Park Poems; The Unhappy Adventures of Alice in Blunderland: Cou...

Seller ID: 2613

Condition: Good condition

The cover of this April, 1938 magazine is charming with it's cluster of bright yellow chicks. The magazine is oversized at 11" x 13" and is tightly bound and clean. There is a mailing label at lower front and some creasing to corners of front cover, but all are lying flat. This was a woman's magazine and as such had fiction, food, fashion and other such categories of the day. I noted that one story was written by Katherine Dos Passos who may, or may not, be the wife of author, John dos Passos. Dos Passos's wife was named Katherine, but I can't find anything to verify it.

Scarce 16 page magazine densely filled with text which marries two causes in this issue -- prohibition and child labor. Measures 9-1/4" x12-1/2" and is clean and tightly bound. Folded for mailing and shows the subscriber's name and VERY minimal address at top edge. The paper has toned on the cover, but has not on the back or inside. There are a couple tiny edge tears, which I repaired with non-browning, almost invisible archival tape.

Godey was the final word on fashion in its day. At the time this specific issue came out the company had been publishing it for 42 years! I've had several Godey's but I don't recall ever seeing so many fold-outs in a single issue. Here we have three -- the full color fashion plate which is especially pretty, a drawing of a dinner party, and a black and white fashion accessory page which is two-sided -- more pretty things on the reverse. One of the most interesting articles is about the health dangers of binding corsets too tightly. The magazine is clean and tightly bound :-), but as you can se... View more info
