SECOND MARKDOWN! 20% OFF! Offered is a grouping of six People's Home Journal magazines -- all May issues from 1917, 1918, 1925, 1926 (2) and 1928. The Journal's contents are typical of the time--there are fiction pieces, homemaking advice and clothing patterns. The issues also have multiple advertisements, some in color, especially on the back covers and reverse side of both covers. Please refer to the pics for the general condition of the covers of each issue--there are some tears. Starting in '17 (100 years ago!), we have a cover of a mother and infant by Bulkeley. The back cover is for Palmolive soap (torn). The reverse is an unusual Coca Cola ad in black (gray) and white, except for the glass of coke which is in coke tone brown. The inside of the front cover is a Cream of Wheat ad--one we had not seen before. It is of a Dutch shopkeeper and child and says "Lest We Forget" (remember, this was during WWI) with the only reference to Cream of Wheat on a shipping crate. Other color ads include Bon Ami and Congoleum. Thirty four pages and 16 1/2 x 11 1/2. 1918--cover of balloon man surrounded by children--very colorful by Edithe F. Butler. The back cover has a gorgeous Egyptian theme Palmolive ad in greens and blues. This shows a mid section crease, but otherwise in good condition for framing. The reverse of the front is a Cream of Wheat ad. Thirty eight pages and 16 1/2 x 11 1/2. 1925 has the best cover for framing--by Anna Cooper, it is of a little girl in bright yellow dress trying to plant seeds, but the approaching chicken has other ideas for the seeds. The back cover is Gold Dust ad. This is 46 pages and now in the '20's, the magazine has shrunk to 10 3/4 x 14 1/2. There are two 1926 issues featuring a Roy Best illustration of little girl feeding fish in their deco style bowl and stand as cat watches with great interest. The back is Gold Dust ad. Forty two pages and again 10 3/4 x 14 1/2. Lastly is 1928 with cover of boys playing baseball--this cover has smudging and we find the colors rather drab. It is 34 pages and 10 3/4 x 14 1/2.
