Group of 38 Health magazine issues, 1905-1909

New York: Health Publishing Co., 1905-1909. 10 inches tall each, in wraps, generally good with some wear and soil (some with quite a bit of good old Pittsburgh coal infused soil). There are 4 issues from 1905, 12 issues from 1906 (but a few are duplicates, so not the whole year), 12 issues from 1907 (again a couple duplicates), 9 issues from 1908 and 1 issue from 1909. Includes all but the first number of the series from 1907 to 1908 that reprinted the Robert Braine science fiction novel "Messages from Mars" (first published in book form in 1892 and very rare). Health magazine also included articles on sport, women, dieting, vegetarianism, naturopathy, etc., including Winifred Fales and C. Gilbert Percival on sports for women, and sometimes oddball articles rife with pseudo-science, such as "The Solar Fluid as a Healing Agent" and "Electro Psychics" that possibly paved the way for the magazine to include early science fiction among its offerings. No attempt has been made to clean these up or do any repairs. Good. Item #H15319

Price: $150.00
