Complete June 1914 issue of the magazine, illustrated in color and black and white, 128 + 725-868 pages, 10 x 7 inches, in color pictorial wrappers as issued. Covers in fair condition only: multiple short tears to edges plus 2 inch tear to back cover, 6 inch split to head and 1 3/4 inch split to tail of spine, multiple creases, water ring to front cover where magazine was obviously used as a coaster. Some interior pages have worn top or bottom edges as a result of an original uneven binding job; very good clean condition overall. Color cover by Coles Phillips ("With apologies to Rose O'Neill") depicts the cherubic Kewpies. Articles include "The Kewpies Arrive" with verse and pictures by Rose O'Neill, "What Next for Women's Clubs", "The Advance of Militancy" (about the suffragette movement) by Emmeline Pankhurst, and much more. The frontispiece is a "Prayer in Times of Change" :"I am cast on unsettled times...It is a turbulent era. Old molds and formulas are exploding. New thought-patterns are a-making. Forces are setting in that promise well-nigh to revolutionize some of our former modes of thinking. The unrest among womankind is one such force...." Item #55993
