Nice lot of 12 consecutive mid 19th century American juveniles magazines with pleasing visual content. Issues included in this lot: January-December 1873 (issues #97-108, complete).
Bindings remains sound, various signs of age, time and handling, overall each is a nice looking example. One cover is torn and repaired.
Small age flaws or defects include possible random old creasing, edge chipping, small light old staining, etc. Overall entirely acceptable examples of what are scarce survivals. The pictures give a very good sense of how the lot 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 blocks remain overall clean, and displays a pleasing age patina.
Magazines remains attractive on the shelf. Lot 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 lot is not new- it is old and has been handled by different owners in the past.
