Years ago we purchased the archives of Life, Judge and Leslie's Magazines from the accountants. These are unread and uncirculated for the most part. You will find an occasional note by the accountant, but usually not on any print. Sometimes a page was removed. We will make note of it when that occurs..
Judge was a large (11X14") long running weekly humor and social and political statement magazine. It was highly illustrated. It was founded in 1881 by James A. Wales, Keppler's erstwhile lieutenant on Puck. Judge struggled for several years, flirting with anti-Semitism and other noxious political views before settling down in 1884 as the chromolithographic organ for the GOP Republicans. These issues had deep and vibrant colors and are in good shape. Two to three color pages.
