Delineator Magazine.
Published May, 1927, New York by the Butterick Publishing Company.
118 pages plus color cover art by Helen Dryden. Profusely illustrated throughout. Nice assortment of pictorial advertising of the era, many full page color ads.

Nice large format early 20th century American "high society" style and fashion magazine with pleasing Art Deco style visual content. Rare issue.

Binding remains sound, various mostly small signs of age, time and handling, nothing offensive or major. Spine sunned and lightly soiled, small smudges, 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 fairly scarce today as individual 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's, the rate of scarcity for any specific magazine or paper item increases noticeably, just look at comic books as an obvious and well known example. Even today, relatively few people save most magazines and other time sensitive printed material.

Text block remains overall clean, remains attractive on the table. It still displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this splendid art deco magazine survives. Note- issue is approaching 100 years and has been handled by different owners in the past.
