August 1, 1918 Serial No. 160 THE MENTOR: Photography By Paul L. Anderson Department of Fine Arts Volume 6, Number 12
Cardstock cover In fair condition, edge wear and corner bumps, and with spine crease very frayed and nearly (not quit, though) severed. Staples still holding internal bound pages together. Cover design is in the Arts and Crafts style popular in that era.
As was typical for this magazine at that time (it later changed), each issue focused on one particular subject. This issue focuses on photography. Twelve center stapled pages sharing information on the history of photography, the uses of photography, printing of photographs, and so forth.
Included are six loose-leaf rotogravure prints showing different types of photography from self-portraits to nature prints to astronomical photographs. On the back side of each of the gravures is an essay explaining that particular branch of photography.
There are a number of copies of The Mentor available out there, but I have rarely encountered another copy of this issue on Photography. It is quite interesting to realize the varying types of photography that was available back in the early 1900's! The articles are interesting to read and the pictures are spectacular, especially when viewed with their age in mind!
It is being stored in a poly-cello bag for its protection.
