Godey's Lady's Magazine.
Published New York, 1867.
2 Volumes, 12 Monthly Issues, 1140 pages.
Period 1/2 leather bindings, profusion of illustrations and engraved plates throughout. Contains nine (of twelve) folding hand colored fashion plates (lacks 3), appears to be otherwise complete but almost impossible to collate and thus offered as found and presented.
Bindings well age worn, rubbed and scuffed, covers all detached, thumbing and small staining throughout from handling and reading. Clearly a pair of books which has been well consulted over the years.
