I am excited to share my vintage thingy find, for today! A couple days ago - I was perusing Craigslist's 'free' section - and there was an ad for 'a few vintage argosy magazines, dated in the early 1920s.' Sight unseen, I hopped on that - and was lucky enough to be the first respondent.
What fun! It turns out I am now the proud owner of all of these:
Here's a little more about the magazine: Argosy was generally considered to be the first American pulp magazine. The first issue was published on December 2, 1882, and was eight pages, cost five cents, and included the first installments of serialized stories by Horatio Alger, Jr. and Edward S. Ellis. In 1920, All-Story Weekly was merged into The Argosy, resulting in a new title, Argosy All-Story Weekly. The final issue of the original magazine was published in November 1978.
The pages are yellowed and very brittle, still I am looking forward to delving into a few stories. Who can resist the very first pulp fiction? Besides - could you pass by a story title like this one:
I didn't think so.
