143 pages. Text in English. Illustrated throughout. Nice assortment of dated advertising as well, often illustrated.
Nice early 20th century American/Canadian magazine with pleasing visual content. Great dirigible airship cover which also notes it was "Printed in Canada on Canadian paper".
Binding remains sound, various signs of age, time and handling. Overall a nice looking example.
Small age flaws or defects include first and final pages adhered by old damp staining to covers, typical edge chipping around covers (due to "yap" edges) 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.
Magazine remains attractive on the shelf. It 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 item survives. This item is not new- it is old and has been handled by different owners in the past.
