Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly October 1890 Vol. XXX No. 4

Regular price $2.50

Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly October 1890 Vol. XXX No. 4 published Essays, Stories, Illustrations, Advertisements, History, Politics and Culture of contemporary interest.

Every copy provides a view of America's cultural history.

Frank Leslie's Popular Monthly started in 1876 and lasted until 1904 when the following year it was taken over by The American Magazine. During its publication it printed essays and stories by some of the best writers of the time.

While this copy of its essays and stories shows clearly the interests of Americans in 1890, the illustrations and advertisements just as clearly and with a certain fascination for today's readers indicate the popular trends of the day. Check the "toilet mask" or "face glove" for women of the 1890s!

This copy of Leslie's Monthly shows considerable wear and tear (as the photos show. ) It almost looks as if a mouse or several mice took a nibble long before I found the book. There are many slight tears and obvious discolorations at the bottom of most pages but no manmade markings, and the entire magazine has a remarkable strength in its binding proper. It feels strong in the hand, and the pages turn as easily as a modern magazine.

The magazine measures 8 inches by 11 inches and about 3/8 inch.  Its pages number 385 to 528.
