Godey's Lady's Book (2 Vols.) -- 1868 (Complete)

By Mrs. Sarah J. Hale, L.A. Godey, Eds

Philadelphia: Louis A. Godey, 1868. Cloth. Very Good. The complete 12-issue run for 1868 of this wonderful monthly, published out of Philadelphia and bound in this case in 2 separate volumes. Both quarto volumes solid and VG in their olive-green cloth, with gilt-lettered leather title labels. More importantly though, the content --the magazines themselves-- has held up very nicely. Light foxing and offsetting to a small number of pages. The plates though (which steal the show) are magnificent; both the engraved and the chromolithographed plates are in beautiful condition. Many of them are long, layered fold-outs and those are sturdy and very well-preserved. The cover for March 1868 is badly torn --and is missing 2/3 of the page-- but this is the only blemish to speak of in an otherwise very impressive collection of 1868's full run.
