All issues within this lot are special supplements, overprinted at top in colored ink, available on the news stands of the era for a higher price than the weekly issue. (By definition a much smaller circulation then weekly issues, these now rare loose issues seemingly never bound but rather survive unsophisticated, as issued).
Excellent lot of eight (8) issues with superior front & rear covers; all appear complete, fresh, clean and well preserved examples.Splendid art by leading artists of the era, great assortment of illustrated advertisements throughout including many influenced by poster designs of the day.
Short video captures condition much better than words. Please watch prior to purchase to ensure a clear understanding of the lot. A much nicer lot than typical for the type.
Issues measure: 15 3/8" H X 11 3/8" W.
