Life Magazines from 1906 through 1919

We recently found a stash of old Life magazines from the early 1900s. These are from a time when Life was a satirical-humor publication, throwing barbs at politicians, world leaders, high society, industrial moguls and intellectuals. From the earliest that we have, which have simple, but noteworthy, line drawings on the covers, to the nineteen teens with stunning color covers, these are real-time statements about the issues important to Americans. The issues between 1910 and 1919 are especially interesting as they are a commentary on the war, women's rights and suffrage. We have these priced between $20 and 29 each.
We also have an excellent selection of issues of the Illustrated London News (New York Edition) from 1894-1896. These are available in the shop, but I will answer inquiries about issues we may have and will send photos as well. Phone 408-399-9090 or email us.
