(Americana, Periodicals, Newspaper Supplements, 20th Century American Newspapers, Art Nouveau, Illustrated Newspapers).
Sunday Magazine of the Boston Sunday Post.
Published March 4th, 1905, Boston by the Boston Sunday Post. Cover by G.A. Harker.
18 pages. Text in English. Lacks the rear cover ads.
Color lithographed covers, profusely illustrated throughout. Nice assortment of dated advertising as well, often illustrated. Saddle stitched.
Outstanding poster art style cover. Arthur Conan Doyle serialized story "Sir Nigel"- chapter 18 within.
Worthy of collecting for the outstanding art nouveau color periodical cover.
Very scarce early 20th century American magazine with a cover worthy of framing, issued as a newspaper supplement and inherently scarce thus. Sold primarily for the cover art, but the whole issue is an added bonus of wonderful content.
Paper and issue remains overall mostly clean, tight, and sound, various mostly small signs of age, time and handling, nothing offensive or major, mostly along the edges. Overall a very nice looking example.
Small age flaws or defects include light soiling or dustiness, possible random old creasing, minor small edge chipping or short edge tear, 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.
Text block remains overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina.
Please review photos for more detail. This item is not new but still looks great- it is old and has been handled by different owners in the past.
Due to large size, will have to be shipped flat well protected with cardboard, so a heavy parcel.
