Prod. Code: 15
This magazine has such an adorable cover. These vintage issues are becoming harder to find, especially if they are in very good condition as this one is. Back in the day, the magazines were so thick and multipaged as compared to today's magazines. Numbered pages are 248. All pages have a gloss to them and one of the best things about this magazine is that even though it is 72 years of age, it has no musty smell which so many vintage paper items have. I have a huge magazine collection and I have tried through the years to never obtain any that have an unpleasant smell. Also has been smoke-free. Anyone familiar with these special magazines know that they have many great recipes, lovely interior decorating, fun to read short stories with wonderful art illustrations,, ladies' fashions, and vintage ads. So much of interest and delight within these pages.
CONDITION: Besides the comments I have already provided on condition, you will be pleased that all the interior pages are excellent condition with no tears, no writing, no damage--almost of newstand quality. The cover is in nice condition with a mall mailing label to Sierra Madre, CA on bottom right, some spinal damage with just about an i1.5 inch of the spinal paper missing but all the pages are tightly bound within the spine. The back cover has a couple of small tears.
I am sure this magazine and condition will not disappoint. The price you see includes shipping within the USA. No international shipping and no overnight shipping. All my shipping is by USPS--either first class or Priority Mail and is included within the purchase price. I originally purchased this magazine in Old Town Pasadena many years ago--probably the 1970s.
