Holly Leaves, The Christmas Number of the Illustrated Sporting & Dramatic News, 1954
1 Holly Leaves, The Christmas Number of the Illustrated Sporting & Dramatic News, 1954
London Commonwealth House 1954 Christmas, 1954 Soft Cover Very Good Folio - over 12" - 15" tall 
From its spectacular red, black and gold cover art to its slick pages, large size, and terrific ads, this vintage British collectible magazine is a thing of beauty! It measures a whopping 10x14-1/4" and is clean as a whistle inside and out, marred only two small errant red marks to bottom front at gilt. Poems and stories abound, but it's the art and the ads that take the breath away. All are gloriously frameable if you can bear to cut the magazine. This edition is especially interesting due to its article on the post office packet service and the gorgeous paintings and history of Plymouth. Magazine has been beautifully preserved . If you love art and/or England it truly doesn't get any better than this.
