New York. Life Publishing Co., 01-18- 1912.
Single issue of the magazine which was previously bound, binding holes to spine, pages loose: color pictorial covers, black and white illustrations throughout, pagination 151-190, 11 x 8 3/4 inches. Wear to spine, cover and interior pages clean and bright. This is the original version of the social commentary and entertainment magazine Life, not the news photo magazine first issued in November 1936. This issue, published at the beginning of the year in which Theodore Roosevelt's Progressive Party included women's suffrage in its platform, reflects that social reality: a cover with a bow-tie wearing woman is seen choosing between figurines of men marked as "moneyed," "mediocre", "business" etc. Inside notes include: "Women are Women...The Votes for Women war seems to be promoted on the theory that woman is a beardless man..." Also an article "Mrs Pankhurst at Harvard," Presidential coverage etc. Item #56207
