Life Magazine dated November 7, 1912. Cover art by Paul Stahr entitled, "The Shrine". Pictures a couple in front of the throne of a chef with a turkey on one side and champagne on the other.
Contents include subjects such as:
Colonel Roosevelt survived the gunshot due to his spectacle case
The Becker trial
and much more.
Back full color illustration is for Baker Electric Cars. Other advertising includes a full color ad for Colgate's Cold Cream, James Pepper Whiskey (endorsed by 37,814 doctors!), Waltham watches, Northern Pacific Steamships and much more.
Amazing political satire throughout accompanied by witty and beautiful illustrations.
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 good condition with tight staples and clean pages. No mailing label. A crease down the center of the cover but only noticeable by feeling it. It does not detract from the cover or the magazine in general. A very small chip on the middle of the cover's bottom. Amazing condition for being over 100 years old!
