THE VICTORIAN MAGAZINE
We were privileged to obtain, several years ago, a limited supply of vintage and antique women's magazines dating back to 1866. All have been carefully stored together in acid free envelopes. They are now being made available while they last. They are a great research tool as well as wonderful and exciting to look at.
Please note the condition as stated. Antique and vintage magazines are from paper and as such, are very fragile. Due caution must be taken when looking at them in order to retain their condition and value. If the magazine or magazines purchased are from the 1800s, they will come together in an acid free clear envelope for storage.
If you have any questions regarding the condition of these magazines or their contents, please e:mail or call us. They are being sold in "As Is Condition". We do not allow for returns on these magazines in order to avoid buyers from purchasing, taking pictures and then returning them.
It as hard to take good close up pictures. Please email or call if you would like additional pictures of any of the magazines or would like to know the specifics of the contents of a magazine.

$29.95 Antique Godey's Lady's Book, July 1866 - Item # 237
This is an Antique Godey's Lady's Book dated July 1866. This is a very old magazine that was the most famous woman's fashion magazine in the 1800s. According to the top of the magazine "We are confident that no one can read Godey month after month without becoming more refined, more ... and more genial. For pure literary taste it ranks amount the first of all parlor magazines." It has lovely illustrations on pages 13 through 22, which includes the piano music to "I'm Dreaming of the Absent". There are other illustrations scattered through the magazine but most reside at the front. It appears that pages 2 through 11 are missing unfortunately. The back page reads page 96. We briefly scanned the rest of the pages and they all seem to be there. The front cover is missing a 1 1/2' square piece and there is tape on the binding. There is wearing to the edges which is very normal at this age. Considering that this magazine is paper and is over 143 years old, it is in pretty good shape. This magazine measures 10"x6 1/2". It will come with an acid free clear envelope for storage.
