Old Magazines (Old Magazines: Identification & Value Guide)

Old Magazines, Second Edition, will delight both collectors and dealers. Author Richard E. Clear has 30 years of experience dealing in periodicals, and wrote his first book on magazines in 1974. Magazines from many different areas are included: movie, trade, fashion, farm, sports, and more, and over 300 new color photos have been added to this edition, representing the thousands of magazines available. The book focuses on the more common, easily recognized and attainable copies rather than rare issues. Each listing includes information such as title, size, volume, publisher, dates published, all known names of the magazine, and a realistic market value. Because old magazines often span large periods and appear in literally thousands of issues, Clear gives criteria for spotting the more valuable issues. Included in this new edition is a list of illustrators with information about where to find their work, a suggested grading guide, a list of paper dolls by name and where they can be found, and a ten-page section on advertisements.

Just received this book on info and values of old magazines. It is exactly what I was looking for. Literally thousands of magazines featured here. What was helpful that I didn't expect was the location of each publication, beginning to end of the lifetime of the magazine, along with values. It also tells you if the publication changed names which I discover MANY old magazines did. It has all of the recognizable magazines like Sports Illustrated and national news magazines to the most obscure magazines, some of which lasted on a few publications.If you have any interest in old magazines, get this resource. Only a person who is very serious about collecting old magazines would know 10% of this info For the rest of us, this is a perfect resource.

The publication was advertised as: "Like New." It came all torn and beat up but it may not have been the vendor's fault. It was sent media mail, and that way of shipping, while it saves money, the media does not always arrive in good shape. As a matter of fact often the Post Office will open the package to verify that it is actually media (Books, CD's etc.) That may have been the case here. I sent the supplier a message and they promptly replied, apologizing and made an instant refund including shipping. When I asked where they wanted me to send the periodical to, the answer was: "Keep it." Not that I wanted it, but the return postage would have been expensive as it was a heavy tome. Who could ask for anything more? I highly recommend this business and will not hesitate to buy anything else from them.

Nothing against this publication, but it was not what I was looking for. I thought it would give the value of individual issues of specific magazines which it did for what I would consider antique magazines. However, there was very little information provided on old issues of contemporary magazines.

This magazine gave me an idea of worth for my old magazines. It is nice & quite colorful. Lots of magazines listed.Buyers are scarce. Shipping is horrendous.I was glad to find this on , but it was of no value in selling my cartons of collected magazines.Ended up donating a few to local library & recycling the rest.
