148 pages. Text in English. Color cover art by Nell Hott. Illustrated throughout. Nice assortment of dated advertising as well, often illustrated.
Early 20th century magazine with pleasing visual content, including several full page color ads.
Bold article relating to Jewish people on cover.
Binding remains clean, tight, and sound, lacks rear cover, couple short closed edge tears, various mostly small signs of age, time and handling, nothing offensive or major. Overall a nice looking example.
Small age flaws or defects include possible random old creasing, edge chipping, small light old staining, etc. Overall entirely acceptable example of what is likely a scarce survival. The pictures give a very good sense of how the item survives.
Virtually all periodicals of this era are somewhat scarce today as loose complete issues. Like most random survivals of old periodical printing, any specific example (like this one) is likely among a relative handful still extant. As each decade goes back from 1950, the rate of scarcity for any specific magazine or paper item increases noticeably.
Text block remains overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina.
Magazine remains attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
