Appx 10pp of ads, articles on alcohol content of about forty popular patent medicines (Dr. Jule’s Celery and Pepsin Tonic was 90 proof! A good dose of that and you wouldn’t care if you were sick or not).

Covers missing, first page missing corner, else good. 7-3/4" x 10-3/4" x 28pp. $20.00


03857-M0695EUES- Journal- THE WORLD TODAY, Chicago. Sept 1907. The World Today Co. A magazine of general interest covering foreign affairs, the nation, music/drama, and the religious world. Well illustrated, lots of ads, good graphics. One article of particular note:  “The Negro Situation- One Way Out” by W. J. Northern, a former governor of Georgia. His conclusion? “We must save the Negro or it is plain his wickedness and his crimes will destroy the State.” Are we to infer that there was no wickedness and criminal activity by the white man?  Back cover has part of an ad clipped, last page bugged in margin. 7” x 10” x 209pp of which 93 are great advertising. $38.00


01122-M0492ROEU- Journals- THE MAGAZINE OF MAGIC, Official Organ of The Magicians' Club, London, England. Edited by Will Goldston. (Goldston was also a dealer in magical goods).

01628-M0493ECEE- Magazines- THE MEDICO-PHARMACEUTICAL CRITIC AND GUIDE, NY. Wm. J. Robinson, PH. G., M.D., Ed. "A Journal of Individuality. No policy except the policy of Truth, Honesty and Fairness. Every reader has an equal chance with the Editor to express his Opinion. No padding. No dead Matter. Every line interesting. All Frauds and Humbugs fearlessly exposed." Five issues: Apr 1914, May 1914, Feb 1915, Mar 1915, Jul 1915. In browsing thru this journal, it’s obvious that they make a serious attempt to live up to their editorial credo. No electric machines advertised here. They are not at all bashful about taking on politicians, quacks, judges. They promote birth control by families, warn against cocaine addiction, take to task those who oppose sensible sex education, etc. Perhaps the medical profession could better judge, but it appears that, at least by example, this journal could hold its place even among today’s journals. Each issue contains appx 25pp of ads. Some covers have small tears, chips, worn. Some quite good. Except for one that has a tear through the entire issue in the top couple of inches and one in gutter, all contents reasonably good. Each is 6" x 9" x appx 64pp.  All. $65.00
