About this Item

This popular magazine, oversized at almost 14" tall, is still fun to read, not just for the great ads, fashions, decorating and recipes, but also for the fiction and articles. A cute New Year's baby graces the cover of this issue which still has a subscription blank inside, plus great period ads for Campbell's soup, Ivory soap, Chesterfield cigarettes, and Butterick patterns, to name a few. Readers of fiction will be pleased to see Kathleen Norris with her story "Dearest Amanda" as well as Hope Hale's charming "Girl Friend's Boyfriend." The biggest name is this issue though belongs to Edna Ferber who appears with part IV of her autobiography "A Peculiar Treasure" which offers a fascinating look at her life from a 1914 trip to Europe to the beginning of her research on show boats for what would become her blockbuster book and the play, "Show Boat." The best news is that Part IV can be read as a stand alone Magazine is clean and nice with just a few small edgetears and a discreet blue mailing label at lower front corner Size: Folio - over 12" - 15" tall.

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
