Tittle, Walter (cover illus).
New York. Life Publishing Co., 03-21- 1912.
Single issue of the magazine which was previously bound, color pictorial covers, black and white illustrations throughout, pagination 567-614, 11 x 9 inches. Binding holes to spine, center block of pages detached (but all present); very good condition overall, 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. Much of interest including double page cartoon "Bird'-Eye View of the Political Situation" by Harry Grant Dart and short pieces on the American West, apparently considered a relative paradise by East Coast suffragettes. Advertisements include motor cars (Maxwell, Hupp Yeats Electric, Franklin Little Six, Packard, Locomobile), Goodyear and Firestone tires, Colt revolvers, Chiclet gum, and more. The color cover "Westward" by Walter Tittle shows successive travelers to the Pacific shore: a Native American, a Conquistador, a frontiersman, a railroad worker, and a fine lady. Item #56301
