Price: $15.00

Publisher: New York, Frank A. Munsey: 1896

Edition: Vol. XVI No. I

Seller ID: 0504

Condition: Good


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 ... View more info

I like this little booklet very much, but was thrilled when I got it home and saw the back cover which contains a lengthy note from the previous owner. I love how she/he read Jasper Johns and came away with ideas for creating original art too. The note reads, "Maybe 14"x21. Start a book a la Jasper Johns -- in place of a journal. Draw, paint what I feel as a means of getting myself back again -- call it reclamation. Consult Julia re size of paper for binding later. Keep it very SIMPLE -- use symbols! Get down inside deep. Could use scanner, copier, computer etc. -- collage!" How fabulous that ... View more info

I love this magazine -- always so ahead of the times with stunning photography and grat articles on travel and the arts. The editors chose to showcase the wonders of Hong Kong by featuring in on the cover, but what caught my eye were articles on the French painter Chaim Soutine and a food article by Waverley Root (author of the classic Food by Waverley Root and The Food of France). Here he takes on the apple, the forbidden fruit. Realite is a top drawer magazine -- very elegant and written in Englsh. View more info

I have had these prints for years, but never listed them because the title is in Asian characters. I can't recall where I even got them, but they are quite handsome. There are supposed to be 16 black and white numbered prints, all portraits drawn with pencil, inside the folder and all are present. But here's the nice surprise -- nine other numbered prints in full color appear to have hitchhiked along. These apparently were at least a set of 10, but one is missing. Nine nice freebies aren't bad though! :-) The folder measures 7-1/2"x10-1/2" and is very clean, though toned. A previous owner also... View more info

The Sculptor's Guild remains hale and hearty today, but this program comes from its very first outdoor exhibition in April and May 1938, just one year after they organized. During the Depression most American artists made their living via the WPA. Consequently, this exhibition relied on sponsors including Eleanor Roosevelt, Fiorello La Guardia,the Rockefeller Foundation and several noted NYC museums. Among the contributors whose work is included in full page black and white photography are Paul Manship, Chaim Gross,and Nathaniel Koz, all noted as earley practitioners of American Modernism. Pr...

A very handsome catalog sent to would-be students. Of course it has all the information needed to determine what courses and majors are offered, classes to be taken etc., as well as the glitzy parade of color photos of student work which is most impressive. The really good part though is the full page black and white photographs of students plying their various arts. Each is full page and and most inviting. Catalog measures 8-1/2"x10-3/4" and has 88 pages, plus laid-in unused application. Clean and nice inside and out with just a few spots of isolated edge wear to front cover. View more info
