This lot features a bound early magazine compilation. As was a popular practice during the 1800s and early twentieth century, individual magazine issues were bound together in a single hard-cover volume. The compilation featured in this lot contains the following issues:

Title: Sunset, The Pacific Monthly
Editor: NA
Issue Date Range: 1917 through 1930, and 1932 through 1942

Notes: This lot includes 26 volumes of bound compilations of Sunset, a magazine written about the Pacific coast and western United States. The magazines feature many photographs and original, color advertisements.

Sunset is a lifestyle magazine in the United States. Sunset focuses on homes, cooking, gardening, and travel, with a focus almost exclusively on the Western United States. The magazine is published monthly by the Sunset Publishing Corporation, part of Southern Progress Corporation, itself a subsidiary of Time Warner. Sunset began in 1898 as a promotional magazine for the Southern Pacific Transportation Company, designed to combat the negative "Wild West" stereotypes about California.
The Sunset Limited was the premier train on the Southern Pacific Railroad’s Sunset Route, which ran between New Orleans and San Francisco (the train is still in operation (from Los Angeles) to this day, as part of the national Amtrak system). Sunset Magazine was started to be available onboard and at the station, in order to promote the West. It aimed to lure tourists onto the company’s trains, entice guests to the railroad’s resort (the Hotel Del Monte in Monterey), and possibly encourage these tourists to stay and buy land, since the Southern Pacific was the largest single landowner in California and Nevada.
In 1914 the railroad sold the magazine to its employees, and Sunset began to publish original articles, stories and poetry focusing on the West. The format resembled other national general interest magazines of the day such as Collier's and The Saturday Evening Post. Sunset reported on heavy political and economic issues; contributors included Stanford president David Starr Jordan discussing international affairs and future U.S. president Herbert Hoover discussing the League of Nations. Fiction and poetry became more ambitious, featuring authors such as Jack London, Dashiell Hammett, Mary Austin, and evangelist Aimee Semple McPherson. (courtesy of Wikipedia)

The bound magazines are in library bindings, with marbled boards and three quarter cloth with gilt embossing. The ex-library volumes show some external age/wear indications, with sunning and rubbing to the board and spine edges. The text blocks are tightly bound, with lightly age toned pages. The books measure approximately 9" x 12". Shipping cost (within the U.S.) for this lot will be: $99.50
