Bindings remain clean, tight, and sound, various mostly small signs of age, time and handling, nothing offensive or major. Each remains overall a nice looking survival.
Small age flaws or defects include possible random old creasing, minor 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 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 examples (like this lot) 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 display a pleasing age patina.
Magazines remain 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.
