Here are 17 "The Old House Journal" magazines. They date monthly from December 1981 through May 1983, with one combined Jan/Feb issue.

These are more booklets, than magazines. They average 26-32 pages of text weight paper, staple bound. 3-hole punched.

All in good+ condition. The top journal is more age-toned than the others, having been exposed to sunlight. Some have the previous owner's address sticker. The back page of the May issue looks like it was once damp. Overall, these are very nice.

Great, illustrated references and fun reading for old house lovers. A favorite feature is the monthly "Remuddle" on the back cover-- a home that has been poorly (even comically) remodeled.

NOTE: Old ruler prop not included!

These ship USPS MEDIA MAIL (approx. 6-10 days) from Portland, Oregon.
