1928 – CHILD LIFE MAGAZINE – TWO (2) ISSUES The Children’s Own Magazine
I purchased a large collection of CHILD LIFE in the early 1990s for the cover art. I had display windows in my Haddonfield, New Jersey, bookshop, and each month changed my displays, and often used one of these magazines with the appropriate holiday theme. Moving my shop in 1995 from there to New Preston, Connecticut, in 2002, I had no shop windows, and my collection of these magazines went into storage – UNTIL NOW.
I have issues from three years, not complete runs. It would be nice to keep these lots together, but if not selling as lots at lower prices, I may catalogue these in my shop from $15 to $25 each depending upon the cover artist, and the great color ads on the rear pages. And, then there are the contents to enjoy.
For 1928 I have only two months – January and February. The magazines measure about 9 inches by 12 inches.
Price for two 1928 issues – $20
1936 – CHILD LIFE MAGAZINE – NINE (9) ISSUES The Children’s Own Magazine
For 1936 I have nine months: March, April, May, June, July, August, September, November and December. The magazines measure about 9 inches by 12 inches.
Price for nine 1936 issues – $85
1937 – CHILD LIFE MAGAZINE – SIX (6) ISSUES The Children’s Own Magazine
For 1937 I have the first six months of the year: January, February, March, April, May and June, as shown below. The magazines measure about 9 inches by 12 inches.
