Victory number JAMES de HOLDEN STONE Winston Churchill VOGUE magazine June 1945. Extremely rare and historically important issue of the British edition of Vogue.
This is the World War II'Victory Number' special, celebrating the end of the Second World War. Lee Millers famous concentration camp and German surrender photos are printed in this issue. They caused a reaction such that Vogue hasnt printed any wartime images since. The Queen & King of Britain photographed by Cecil Beaton standing outside bomb-damaged Buckingham Palace, and then meeting soldiers, over 2 pages. Cecil Beaton in China, 2 pages - see pic.
A choice of Churchilliana, in tribute to Winston Churchill the Prime Minister who inspired us. Johnson, wrote a tribute for Vogue. Women Who Went To War.
2 page feature - see pic. Jean Cocteau and more (see pic). The Scales of Justic photographed by Lee Miller. Head Winds From France - models in the newest French millinery - see pic.
Oull notice the iconic Schiaparelli. Hat, likely its first appearance in Vogue. A bold statement perhaps but I have spent some time researching thisand it looks like Paris Vogue had ceased printing owing to the war. Unlike British Vogue, the UK government decided Vogue would be one of 3 or 4 magazines to remain in print to maintain the moral of the British public even though there was strict paper-rationing. There is a photograph in one of our WWII Vogues showing Cecil Beatons print archive at Vogue House being recycled for the war effort!Norman Parkinson, Erwin Blumenfeld & Beaton fashion photography. Roger Descombes fashion illustrations, colour plates. Renee Asherson photographed by Norman Parkinson. London Head Lines - models wearing the latest designs in hats, shot by Haupt. Maria Barry and Margaret Leighton are shot by Beaton for a fashion feature. As is Valerie Hobson by John Rawlings. Vogue Pattern Book; 8 pages including childrenswear and photography by Clifford Coffin. Gala-the liveliest lipstick in town. Shoes by Panda Footwear Co, and Coty.
English Vogue began in 1916 and this issue is a rare artefact. These early issues of UK Vogue are very difficult to find now. Cover illustrated by - James de Holden Stone, Vogue's art director. Condition - Score marks, brown marking and a couple of tears visible in pencil on the cover, along with two pieces of paper missing at opposite ends of the cover.
Otherwise excellent - spine sturdy and pages fine. Rare to find such an iconic old Vogue! We are happy to combine orders and pass on the savings to you.

We have thousands of magazines close to us in our archive and office and we also have many more in boxes in storage.
Any stock we retrieve is being handled with gloves. All of our stock is already sealed, as all our vintage magazines are stored in individual archive sleeves, in acid-free boxes, and in climate-controlled art storage.The world has changed and it will continue to change in profound ways that we cannot fully imagine. We have no other income and we really appreciate any sales we make that at this time. As we start this long path of isolation and spend more time cut off we are, in a small way, a little excited about the idea of being able to provide reading material and rare magazines for people all over the world.
With love from all of of us at this very difficult time. _gsrx_vers_486 GS 6.5.1 (486).
