We are dealers of fine & rare books and periodicals located in Portland Oregon and we are happy to answer any questions you have. We are going through the process of closing our store and have a full basement of magazines that we are ready to let go.These range from all the Rolling Stones starting with approximately issue 20 through the 90s; all of the Life magazines from the first issue through the 1980s; all of the Sports Illustrateds and Playboys post 1955; rare movie and fashion/architecture magazines dating back to the 1920s; a wide variety of rare titles that are rarely seen; a large collection of Mad magazines; and many more. They have not been picked through and include enough stock to start one of the best online magazine stores, or to open a retail location filled with full magazines and original ads. We also have nearly full runs of Playboy, Sports Illustrated, Rolling Stone and thousands of other magazines which run the gamut from significant to common.
Please feel free to ask any questions that you have. We are an independently owned and run bookstore located in Portland, OR which has been in operation for almost 30 years. We have over 25,000 books in stock and specialize in rare and antiquarian books, with our favorite genres being the social sciences (history, art, sociology, the classics) and the classics.We also deal in rare/vintage magazines and ephemera. We are happy to answer any questions you have about our listings and attempt to provide as much information and as many photos of the items listed as possible. Thanks for looking and we hope to do business with you in the future. We use the traditional grading system for books and magazines. The grades are Fine, Near Fine (NF) + or -, Very Good (VG) + or -, Good (G) + or -, Fair and Poor. I can't think of anything that we will be listing here which will be worse than Very Good or Good. For magazines, the grades will be Near Mint+(which will be our best grade as we don't use Mint for used or collectible magazines because any circulated magazine will have some damage, no matter how imperceptible) or -, Excellent+ or -, Very Good+ or -, Good or Poor.
Fine or Near Mint+: Little to no wear, with at most one or two minor flaws. Near Fine or Excellent: Light wear, described in the listing, may contain a small marking in the book by a former owner.Possibly a bumped corner or a mark. Magazine will show a little wear, probably appears to have been read. Very Good (both categories): A little more wear, maybe some creasing or soiling on a magazine; definitely read. Book showing some light marks on the covers, maybe a bumped corner or two. Both should be clean inside unless noted. Good: Significant wear, with some soiling and probably some light rips or tears. Books are significantly worn, soiled and sunned.
