Nice early 20th century American magazine with pleasing visual content.
Binding well age worn, covers detached with numerous edge tears and chipping loss, various signs of age, time and handling, clearly much handled. Rare in any condition.
Small age flaws or defects include possible random old creasing, edge chipping, small light old staining, etc. 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, especially the more esoteric and larger in size they are.
Magazine remains attractive on the shelf.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique item survives. This item is not new- it is old and has been handled by different owners in the past.
