1860, Philadelphia, Louis A. Godey. Contains six monthly issues, appears to be complete as issued with six hand colored fashion plates, numerous engravings and many full page and smaller wood engraved illustrations throughout, some with tinted color ink.
Of note for the binders tag and location of binding- Milwaukee, Wisconsin. [H. Niedecken & Co.]. With early contemporary female owners inscription in Wisc. as well.
Binding remains sound, tight, clean and sound, joints scuffed, extremities worn, tips bumped, small spine end chipping. Still, nice shelf appearance and overall pleasing example.
Unique and scarce thus.
