This is not the Life magazine of the 50's and 60's with a lot of photographic works. The early Life Magazine was satirical, using cartoons, illustrations and words to parody the times. Mark Twain was a frequent target of the lampooning and the drama critic was known for his dislike of most of the Broadway plays of the day.
This vintage magazine is in fair condition with the top staple of the cover separated and centerfold separated from both staples. There is also a crease along the center of the pages (I believe someone must have carried it in their purse because it's very clean). The pages are clean and unbent.
