New York: The F-R Pub. Corp, 1925. Original wraps. Very Good. The uncommon February 21, 1925 maiden issue of "The New Yorker", with the dandy Eustace Tilley (created by Rea Irvin) gracing the iconic original cover. This copy has held up nicely -- fragile to be sure but still very solid and with a strong binding. There's very light creasing and wear to the panels and along the lower page edges but the colors remain vibrant and the magazine is crisp and well-preserved, easily meriting a grading of VG. Incredibly, "The Talk of the Town" is prominently featured, even in this inaugural issue, and the illustrations (by the likes of Miguel Covarrubias, Ralph Barton and Herb Roth) set a very important tone and play a key supplementary role. And the wonderful local ads at the rear even feature --remarkably-- a number of small, independent bookshops. The Advisory Editors (as stated on the first page) are made up of: Ralph Barton, Marc Connelly, Rea Irvin, George S. Kaufman, Alice Duer Miller, Dorothy Parker and Alexander Woollcott.
