Minneapolis, Minnesota: Fawcett Publications, 1934. Quarto. Item #028406
58 pages. One of the half-dozen magazines which attempted to emulate the New Yorker in terms of sophistication and expertise. The magazine cover by Henri was also reminiscent of Esquire Magazine. The magazine had a section by Joe MacGaheran called "Book stalling" where he is noting that it was just 12 years ago that "the valiant Sylvia Beach" published Ulysses. He notes that on January 26, Random House will be published at $3.50 a copy (after he notes copies previously were smuggled in which were passed from penthouse to bungalow). He also goes on to note the writing of a young Irishman Sean O'Faolain. The cartoon is of two ladies inquiring whether the bookshop has a copy of Ulysses and the clerk look at them in shocked amazement. Also, the Women's City Club of St. Paul has brought in Alexandra Danilova for the Ballet Russe. There also looks at local Polo, Golf, large homes, and a full page ad for Northwest Airways High Speed Flights to the West (Fargo, Missoura, Spokane, etc.) at 200 miles per hour. Bound into a black cloth binding lettered in gilt, spine plain, original color wrappers bound in, front wrap with a few scratches and one tape mend to outer edge. A very good copy.
