I'm in the process of downsizing. As such, I'm selling my collection of vintage and antique books, art, glassware, silver, etc, inherited from my family. We are a smoke-free home. If you require more information or photos, please do not hesitate to contact me. I'm trying to set the postage on this site to media mail for books to cut down on expense. Also when it comes to the books and other vintage items. if for some reason you do not want it, please feel free to return it to me. I will refund the price of the item to you.
In this section I am offering a vintage set of MENTOR MAGAZINES. It's hard to know where to begin to describe them. They are all from 1914-1916. My grandfather probably bought them at a newsstand when he immigrated to this country in order to learn more about America. Each booklet is around 12-15 pages long, they deal with a variety of subjects. On the cover it says, "Learn Something New Every Day." There are many photos and drawings. In fact, most of the photos are frameable. Most of the booklets are intact, but some are only a few pages with no covers. However, all of the print and paper and photos are in very good condition, considering their age, if a bit yellowed. This is truly a set for the collector. Also for mothers or teachers who want to show their children what the world used to look like, especially the US, through pictures (and print). Topics include: gems, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, the Yosemite Valley (photos in color by hand here), Shakespeare country, historic gardens of New England, American miniature painters, keeping time, Southern California, the Madonna in Art, the story of the American Navy, Game animals of America, American Poets of the Soil, American Pioneer Prose Writers, Russian Music, Walter Scott, Raphael, Rembrandt, the Orchestra, The American Triumvirate, and John Paul Jones. That's 22 booklets.
