(Old Periodicals, 19th Century Newspapers, Illustrated Newspapers, Ladies' Home Journal).
The Ladies' Home Journal.
Published monthly, Philadelphia 1889-1891 by Curtis Publishing Company.
4 issues, each c. 32 pages. Text in English. Illustrated throughout. Nice assortment of dated advertising as well, often illustrated.
Nice late 19th century American Women's periodicals with pleasing visual content. Issues included in this lot: November 1889; January, February, & March 1891.
Bindings remains attractive, various mostly small signs of age, time and handling, nothing offensive or major. Overall each remains 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.
Magazines remain attractive on the shelf. Each 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 antique lot survives. This item is not new- it is old and has been handled by different owners in the past.
Will be shipped flat well protected by cardboard, so parcel will weigh around 3-4 pounds.
