Sunday Magazine of the Boston Sunday Post.- Ideal American Beauties: No. 9- The Chrysanthemum Girl, By Louis Rhead.
Published October 22nd, 1905, Boston by the Boston Sunday Post.
20 pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout. Nice assortment of dated advertising as well, often illustrated. Saddle stitched.
Worthy of collecting for the outstanding art nouveau color lithographed cover art.
Very scarce early 20th century American magazine worthy of framing, issued as a newspaper supplement and inherently scarce thus.
Binding 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 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.
Text block remains overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina.
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.
