About this Item

Very Good. See scans and description. New York: Leslie-Judge Co., 1923. First Edition. November 24, 1923, Vol. 85, No. 2195. Quarto, illustrated wraps, 32 pp. The titillating cover, "Turkey, With Very Little Dressing", is by renowned pin-up artist Enoch Bolles. Iinterior illustrations in color and b&w by a variety of noted, and less-noted, artists, some of whom are Ralph Barton; Clive Weed; Charles Baskerville; James Montgomery Flagg; Gilbert Wilkinson; Angus MacDonnall. A large number of others. Remarkable condition for a Judge issue from the 20's. Front cover soil (see scan), rust starting at staples, just a bit of the usually more pronouced age-toning to the paper. Rear cover bears subscriber's address at lower right corner. See scans. A strong Very Good or better. Sturdy. The "Thanksgiving" number of this famous and long-lived weekly magazine of humor & satire, which by this time was very Art-Deco in its illustrations; plenty of flapper-ism, too. Thanksgiving theme is suggested by the cover (see scan) featuring a fetching young lady snitching a nibble from the fridge, as well as by much of the interior humor, but Judge editors (at the time of this issue, Douglas H. Cooke, Eliot Keen, J.A. Waldron, William Morris Houghton, and William Edgar Fisher) were never much for limiting themselves entirely to the theme. Jokes, cartoons and satire abound, interestingly unencumbered by current forms of political correctness. Some of the artwork is really quite Art Deco here, though the issue was published just one year after the exposition which truly focused that art genre and eventually gave it its name. A notable example is the full-page intro illustration "Duse" by Ralph Barton for George Jean Nathan's piece on Ibsen's 'The Lady From the Mediterranean Sea', the lead actress in that being Eleonora Duse, and the Barton illustration being a caricature in Deco of both. Remarkable. Superb piece of Americana and American humor, laced with very with-it art. A very handsomely preserved copy, which is itself something of a rarity for issues from the era. See all scans.
