Magazine

Rare printed material tracing the new path to independence gained by women with the invention of the automobile. Hearst, William Randolph. Motor Magazine. January 1923, Vol. XL No. II. Large, thick softcover magazine. 420 pages. Measures 10" x 13.25". Coming of age at the same time as the suffrage movement was reaching full swing, the new technology offered by the automobile allowed women not only a newfound sense of freedom, but the ability to travel unimpeded, to demonstrate mastery of a new technology, and even opened careers in mobility. This magazine is filled with automobile articles, photos, technical details, production and price list and several dozens of vintage illustrated advertisements, many full-page and some in color. Illustrated cover by famed artist Howard Chandler Christie features a woman holding a feather looking down on a vintage vehicle in vibrant color. Includes articles by Arthur Train, Cap. Eddie Rickenbacker and many others. Covers are lightly soiled and worn along spine and edges have a few short edge tears, but content is very clean and bright. Overall, magazine is in very good condition. Fascinating automobile history in a huge annual "New Car" edition of Hearst's Premiere Magazine.
