Ainslee's Vintage Magazine January 1905 with Great Advertisements

"Ainslee's -- The Magazine That Entertains" was published in January of 1905. It cost 15 cents and has amazing advertising throughout.

Ainslee's Magazine began in March 1897 as The Yellow Kid, a humor weekly, coat-tailing on the popularity of the "Yellow Kid" newspaper cartoons. In July 1897 it became a monthly as The Yellow Book. As the Yellow Kid boom faded, it changed format and was renamed Ainslee's in February 1898.

At first it was a general-interest magazine, with articles and stories, but in late 1902 it changed to an all-fiction format.

Authors in this edition include Robert Hichens, Vincent Harper, Edith MacVane, Joseph C. Lincoln and Cyrus Townsend Brady to name a few.

Ainslee's lasted until December 1926, after which it was merged into Far West Illustrated.

This magazine is in good vintage condition with some wear along the edges. The pages are clean and the binding is tight.
