Four tightly bound magazines, each measuring 5-1/2"x8-1/2" sporting the same blue cover design with ads at back cover. This is a hard one to find in these early issues and all four are completely intact save a small loss of paper at spines. A few spines show evidence of regluing to paper, but only at crown and tail of two. Spine paper has darkened and there are a few small exterior stains, plus dampstain mark to edges of a couple pages on two issues. Otherwise text block is very clean on all. The advertising is wonderful with illustration in some instances. Magazine was published for the merch... View more info

I am very fond of this magazine, of which I have maybe five issues . I got them all at the same time and never saw another since! The yellow cover is very clean, as are the pages and page edges with no names or writing. There's a color plate at frontis and maps within the text. Lengthy articles include "Irish Soldiers and Plotters in Williamite England" (16 pages); and "Major General Oliver Harty in Brittany 1799-1800" (29 pages). If you would like to know about the other issues send an email, or phone, and I'll give you the details. View more info

Edition: August 1952

Seller ID: 0276

Charm is not a magazine you see too much, probably because there were fewer women in the workplace in 1952. I wasn't really too surprised that work played a small role in the magazine's content other than the clothes one wore to the office. But -- wow! -- what sophisticated clothes these were. I always think of poodle skirts and Donna Reed shirtwaists when I think of the 50's, but not for these women. High fashion! The other topics include the predictable -- child care and what to fix for dinner. But if you're a fashion junkie, this one is fabulous! Clean and tightly bound with a few creases t...

Liberty Magazine was all about news, pop culture, politics and fiction, but with just a sly touch of the National Inquirerer. Check out the come-on on the cover of this one -- Will Lindbergh Save Hauptmann? Inside Facts of the Kidnaping (sic) Case Never told Before and Why I am Out as their Attorney by Edward J. Reilly, former chief counsel for the defense. If you're a Lindbergh collector Liberty followed the case carefully week after week. There's other articles, several short sotries and a part of a serialized novel by Achmed Abdullah, which was the pseudonym of the Russian-born author Alexa... View more info

This is not one you find often, but if you love pipes (the kind for smoking) it's a lot of fun. There's great info and many photos, but the magazine didn't take itself so seriously that there wasn't a light side. Article topics include: tobacco blends and their wide range of prices; the pleasure of making your own pipe; astrology and the pipe-smoker, how corncob pipes are made, the 90,000 pipes in Keen's English Chop House in New York City, Keen's English Chop House , the Japanese love of pipes, pipes and the law, to filter or not to filter, pipe smokers and sports, how a pipe defines you, and...

Magazine isn't perfect, but what a find to see a short story, The Case of the Curious Bride, by Erle Stanley Gardner at the very back. He's not even on the cover! But Gardner's here and the story features one of his most popular characters -- Perry Mason. It's also nicely illustrated in vintage 30's style. The other interesting note is a rebuttal about women's intelligence by the novelist Kathleen Norris. The magazine is clean and tightly bound but shows small chips to bottom edge and a few tiny edge tears to outer side edges which I have repaired with very small pieces of invisible archival t...

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." But don't get too excited -- check out picture two! This issue is clean and tightly bound, but as you can see, there's some chipping to the bottom edge, thanks to the yapped edges which all but beg for this to happen. A previ... View more info
