(Old Magazines, 20th Century Periodicals, Illustrated Magazines, Saturday Evening Post, Norman Rockwell, Coca Cola Advertising).
The Saturday Evening Post.
Published weekly, Philadelphia by Curtis Publishing Company.
5 issues, each c. 104 pages. Text in English. Nice assortment of dated advertising as well, mostly illustrated, a scattering in color.
All five issues have iconic covers by Norman Rockwell.
Nice lot of 5 early American magazines with pleasing visual content. Issues included in this lot: April 21st & May 19th, 1934; July 1935 October 24th, & November 21st 1936;
Covers have original address labels, some are spotted or small lightly scattered soiling, bindings show signs of handling and time but are still attractive overall, nothing offensive or major.
Small age flaws or defects include possible random old creasing, edge chipping, small light old staining, possibly a missing page or cut out coupon, etc. Overall entirely acceptable example of what is likely a scarce survival. The pictures give a very good sense of how the item survives. We have not gone through each issue page by page, time simply forbids it and the price reflects the possibility of their being typical small flaws unknowable on old periodicals handled in large lots and offered in groups.
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 of each remains overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina, some curled corners.
Lot remains attractive on the shelf, the various small age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this lot survives. The items are not new-they're been browsed and handled by different owners in the past.
A very heavy lot of magazines. Best shipping cost by multiples is slow Media rate. Magazines will be well packed in a heavy box to withstand transit. Patience may be required, all magazine and book lots are sent with tracking and will arrive safely in due course.
Magazines Measure c. 13 3/4" H x 11" W.
