Pictorial Review - February, 1929. McLelland Barclay Cover; Art Deco, Flapper, Vintage Romance Fiction; "Why Not A Woman in the Cabinet?" Editorial; Kathleen Norris; Mary Roberts Rinehart; Margaret Prescott Montague et al. Vintage Paper Doll Page.

By Arthur T. Vance (Editor)

New York: The Pictorial Review Company, 1929 Very Good, as noted. See scans and description. New York: The Pictorial Review Company, 1929. The February, 1929 issue of the extraordinarily scarce Pictorial Review, a collection of fiction, art and more by the specialists in those categories in the twenties. Folio - "bedsheet" size- at 13 7/8" tall; illustrated stapled wraps, 130 pp. Very Good; subscriber's label on cover, some light dust on covers, abrasion at spine, and several coupons have been excised internally. Nonetheless, a rather stunning tour de force of the skills of romance writers and romance illustrators, something simply not to be found in any form today. Art Deco, Flapper-ish Fashion, Vintage Romance Fiction moods prevail. There is even a paper doll page, in color, to be cut out and played with, still untouched. A notable editorial, "Why Not A Woman in the Cabinet?", appears front-and-center. Kathleen Norris; Mary Roberts Rinehart; Margaret Prescott Montague et al are some of the contributors, along with a host of skilled illustrators of the hard-workin' type at that time. Classic ads, many in full color, inspire nostalgia. Very, very scarce period publication. Ships in a new, sturdy, protective box, of course - not a bag. LG8

Judge Magazine - November 24, 1923 / The World's Wittiest Weekly. Enoch Bolles Cover; Ralph Barton; Clive Weed; Charles Baskerville; James Montgomery Flagg; Gilbert Wilkinson; Angus MacDonnall; Art Deco. "Thanksgiving" Number.

By Douglas H. Cooke, Eliot Keen, J.A. Waldron, William Morris Houghton, William Edgar Fisher (eds.); Clive Weed; George Jean Nathan; George Mitchell

New York: Leslie-Judge Co., 1923 Very Good. See scans and description. New York: Leslie-Judge Co., 1923. First Edition. November 24, 1923, Vol. 85, No. 2195. Quarto, illustrated wraps, 32 pp. The titillating cover, "Turkey, With Very Little Dressing", is by renowned pin-up artist Enoch Bolles. Iinterior illustrations in color and b&w by a variety of noted, and less-noted, artists, some of whom are Ralph Barton; Clive Weed; Charles Baskerville; James Montgomery Flagg; Gilbert Wilkinson; Angus MacDonnall. A large number of others. Remarkable condition for a Judge issue from the 20's. Front cover soil (see scan), rust starting at staples, just a bit of the usually more pronouced age-toning to the paper. Rear cover bears subscriber's address at lower right corner. See scans. A strong Very Good or better. Sturdy. The "Thanksgiving" number of this famous and long-lived weekly magazine of humor & satire, which by this time was very Art-Deco in its illustrations; plenty of flapper-ism, too. Thanksgiving theme is suggested by the cover (see scan) featuring a fetching young lady snitching a nibble from the fridge, as well as by much of the interior humor, but Judge editors (at the time of this issue, Douglas H. Cooke, Eliot Keen, J.A. Waldron, William Morris Houghton, and William Edgar Fisher) were never much for limiting themselves entirely to the theme. Jokes, cartoons and satire abound, interestingly unencumbered by current forms of political correctness. Some of the artwork is really quite Art Deco here, though the issue was published just one year after the exposition which truly focused that art genre and eventually gave it its name. A notable example is the full-page intro illustration "Duse" by Ralph Barton for George Jean Nathan's piece on Ibsen's 'The Lady From the Mediterranean Sea', the lead actress in that being Eleonora Duse, and the Barton illustration being a caricature in Deco of both. Remarkable. Superb piece of Americana and American humor, laced with very with-it art. A very handsomely preserved copy, which is itself something of a rarity for issues from the era. See all scans.

Au Paradis. Matted and Framed Print of Illustration from La Vie Parisienne, Numero de Samedi 9 Fevrier 1924. Chéri Herouard, Gerda Wegener, Maurice Milliere, or Pierre Brissaud

By uncredited (prob. Chéri Herouard, Gerda Wegener, Maurice Milliere, or Pierre Brissaud)

Paris: La Vie Parisienne, 1924 Framed, Matted modern print of an Illustration from the February 9, 1924 issue of the famed La View Parisienne. Outside dimensions 12 1/2" x 10 3/8"; exposed image size is 8 1/8" x 5 7/8". Professionally matted and mounted in walnut and glass by Bach Studio in Syracuse, backed and wired. Fine condition, throughout. The Eden-like tranquility of the depicted scene is one of the moods almost singularly achieved by the forty or fifty outstanding illustration artists who handled all the work for La Vie Parisienne in the Golden Age of that famed Society magazine, and who in many cases first achieved fame therein. While the large full-color work was always credited in the visually sumptuous periodical, more than half of the supporting black and white works - some of which were equally impactful, each in its own way - were uncredited; such is the case here. Judging by style and other factors, the likely creator of "Au Paradis", in my best judgment, was probably from the short list of Chéri Herouard, Gerda Wegener, Maurice Milliere, or Pierre Brissaud.

L'Ephémère des Artistes de La Vie Parisienne - le Numero de 23 Mars 1918 Art Deco-Art Nouveau Illustrations by Chéri Hérouard, Georges Léonnec, Suzanne Meunier, Carlegle, others uncredited.

Paris: La Vie Parisienne, 1918 Paris: La Vie Parisienne, 1918. Illustrations - ephemera from an unassembled issue of March 23, 1918 of La Vie Parisienne, from its Golden Age, by some of the forty or fifty great illustration artists who gained famed, in large part, for their work in that famed Society magazine. 8 pages remaining here from a partly stapled but not fully assembled original copy of the issue; one seam is even unopened. The included art is by Chéri Hérouard, Georges Léonnec, Suzanne Meunier, Carlegle, and others uncredited. Text in French. Illustrated wraps in the very large folio size (13.75" x 10.5"), 8 glossy pages here of an original 19. As remaining ephemera, these pages are in Very Good condition, and more than suitable for framing or other applications; a touch of crinkle, some tiny seam chips, and short closed edge cuts, none of which show up well in the scans (which see). The two-page spreads - of a folio size publication - are too large to be completely included on even a large-format scanner, but you will get the idea. The conceits of Art Nouveau and Art Deco, evolving one to the other at the time, as those could be manifested through depiction of the wonders of French women, may never have been more stunning than they were through the remarkable sensibilities of the coterie of artists who regularly contributed to La Vie Parisienne. These pages are from an unassembled original - and of course first and only edition - example of that unique publication. As such, extraordinarily hard to replace, whether in full issues or as surviving, frame-able ephemera, as here. l-eph2

Illustrated wraps, folio (13.75" x 10.5"), 19 pp. Just Good, because both covers are detached (though fully present) from the main body, which is itself quite firmly integral; otherwise, this is a Very Good Plus issue or better, with contents virtually immaculate after all this time. Sharp. See scans. Exceptional condition for this thin-but-large, fragile weekly. Glossy covers; first and last few internal pages are on newsprint, else all glossy.

In the case of this issue, Chéri Herouard, Vald'Es (Valvérane & D'Espagnat), Fabien Fabiano, Louis Vallet and Henri Avelot are credited, with some other very credit-worthy art being uncredited. See scans. Cute humor, from the same mood as mutoscope cards, or perhaps a bit (only a bit) more refined. Gentle titillation. Even the occasional partial nudity is rather tasteful and soft, though humorously flirtatious. All of the full page efforts are eminently frame-able, and at this time of a sensibility midway-evolved between nouveau and deco, as is much of the uncredited b&w illustration. An original - and of course first and only edition - of the 2/9/1924 issue of this memorable and long-lived French weekly offering of very soft, very artful light erotica. The captioned illustrations by the eminent "dessins" luminaries named above, and others in their clan, are what really "make" this issue (as was generally the case through the era), but cartoons, serial fiction and around-town pieces nicely compliment those.

Parisiana / Jeudi 16 Octobre 1930 / Art Deco/Nouveau; pin-up; light erotica; cover art by Jack Abeille; rear cover art by Rene Giffey

By (editor uncredited); Artists: Rene Giffey, Jack Abeille, Louis Forton, Haye, H. Ligneul, G. LeBelair

Paris: Parisiana, 1930 Paris: Parisiana, 1930. The October 16, 1930 issue (16e annee, No. 267) of Parisiana, the somewhat less expensively produced, and somewhat smaller, cousin of the famed La Vie Parisienne - both being, well, soft erotica and humor weeklies for the gentleman; this Parisiana claimed Jeudi (Thursday) as its publication dates, while La Vie Parisienne was strictly Samedi (Saturday). Parisiana had all of the enticements, to a slightly lesser degree, that its larger relative had: pleasingly executed soft erotic art, cartoons, humor, and fiction; and it generally had an inside front cover black and white photo, which LVP did not. Parisiana Parisiana illustrators were perhaps less famous at the time, and went uncredited - or credited with just initials or a single name - more often than in LVP. But the appeal is identical. Text in French. Larger than quarto at Folio size (as was LVP, but LVP was a notably larger folio size), illustrated stapled newsprint wraps (whereas LVP had some glossy paper pages), 20 pp. including covers, as numbered. This example is in Very Good condition - would be Near Fine to Fine, but it has had professional tape repair to the spine (see scans). Very bright, tight and clean. Brave condition for this thin, fragile weekly. Quite thoroughly illustrated in Nouveau/Deco, and every page would make a delightful scan if I had the time. Jack Abeille produced the cover for this issue, and frequent contributor Rene Giffey executed the rear cover; interior artists in these issues, to the degree they are credited, include Giffey, Jack Abeille, Pierre Huberty, Louis Forton, Moziss, Lindel, "JAC", Haye, H. Ligneul, G. Le Belair, Clerice Fr., G. Conrad and A. Perre. There are others. Cute sense of humor, from the same mood as mutoscope cards, or perhaps a bit (only a bit) more refined, inspires the cover captions (which see) and much of the interior cartoon wit. There is plenty of advertising to tempt the...gentleman as well, offering a plethora of services (see scans). Much here is eminently frame-able, newsprint notwithstanding. The art is mostly of that unique sensibility of the time, midway-evolved between arts nouveau and deco. Scarce. l-g3

Parisiana - Jeudi 16 Juin 1932. Art Deco/Nouveau, pin-up, light erotica; cover art by Rene Giffey; rear cover art by G. Conrad

By (editor uncredited); Artists: Rene Giffey, Jack Abeille, Pierre Huberty, Louis Forton, Moziss, Lindel, "JAC", A. Perre, Haye, H. Ligneul, G. LeBelair, Clerice Fr., G. Conrad

Paris: Parisiana, 1932 Paris: Parisiana, 1932. The June 16, 1932 issue (18e annee, No. 354) of Parisiana, the somewhat less expensively produced, and somewhat smaller, cousin of the famed La Vie Parisienne - both being, well, soft erotica and humor weeklies for the gentleman; this Parisiana claimed Jeudi (Thursday) as its publication dates, while La Vie Parisienne was strictly Samedi (Saturday). Parisiana had all of the enticements, to a slightly lesser degree, that its larger relative had: pleasingly executed soft erotic art, cartoons, humor, and fiction; and it generally had an inside front cover black and white photo, which LVP did not. Parisiana Parisiana illustrators were perhaps less famous at the time, and went uncredited - or credited with just initials or a single name - more often than in LVP. But the appeal is identical. Text in French. Larger than quarto at Folio size (as was LVP, but LVP was a notably larger folio size), illustrated stapled newsprint wraps (whereas LVP had some glossy paper pages), 20 pp. including covers, as numbered. A handsome Near Fine, with really just standard modest age-toning, and not much else in the way of flaws (see scans). Extraordinarily nice condition for this thin, fragile weekly. Quite thoroughly illustrated in Nouveau/Deco, and every page would make a delightful scan if I had the time. Frequent contributor Rene Giffey executed cover here, with the rear cover being done by G. Conrad; other artists in these issues, to the degree they are credited, include Rene Giffey, Jack Abeille, Pierre Huberty, Louis Forton, Moziss, Lindel, "JAC", Haye, H. Ligneul, G. Le Belair, Clerice Fr., G. Conrad and A. Perre. There are others. Cute sense of humor, from the same mood as mutoscope cards, or perhaps a bit (only a bit) more refined, inspires the cover captions (which see) and much of the interior cartoon wit. There is plenty of advertising to tempt the...gentleman as well, offering a plethora of services (see scans). Much here is eminently frame-able, newsprint notwithstanding. The art is mostly of that unique sensibility of the time, midway-evolved between arts nouveau and deco. Scarce. l-g2

Larger than quarto at Folio size (as was LVP, but LVP was a notably larger folio size), illustrated stapled newsprint wraps (whereas LVP had some glossy paper pages), 20 pp. including covers, as numbered. This example is in Good condition only, primarily because both its covers are detached and it has experienced a modest amount of small peripheral chipping; complete, however, and bright (see scans). Brave condition for this thin, fragile weekly. Quite thoroughly illustrated in Nouveau/Deco, and every page would make a delightful scan if I had the time.
