This is an 1864*, Jan-Dec, Frank Leslies Magazine that measures 11.75" x 15.5". What makes this rare is that not only are there all 12 colored fashion plates noted that are fold out, but also fold out of monthly "posters" of the fashions as seen in the photo. These "posters" measure 16" x 23". There are occasional brown spots noted on pages. Etchings noted throughout. Some of the pages are ripped, but the rarity of this book is amazing. Hope someone will love and treasure the book as much as we have.

Frank Leslie's Weekly, later often known in short as Leslie's Weekly, was an American illustrated literary and news magazine founded in 1852 and continuing publication well into the 20th century. It was one of several magazines started by publisher and illustrator Frank Leslie and was continued after his death in 1880 by his widow, the women's suffrage campaigner Miriam Florence Leslie. The name, by then a well-established trademark, remained also after 1902, when it no longer had a connection with the Leslie family. It continued until 1922. Throughout its decades of existence, the weekly provided illustrations and reports - first with woodcuts and Daguerreotypes, later with more advanced forms of photography - of wars from John Brown's raid at Harpers Ferry and the Civil War until the Spanish-American War and the First World War. Leslie’s Weekly offered perspective on politics, society, the environment, culture, poems, stories, articles, as well as hand-tinted fashion plates which provide a record of the progression of women's dress and fashion advice.

Godey’s and Peterson’s Magazines were two of the most popular monthly fashion publications for women during the 19th century, but Frank Leslie was also popular, but not seen as much making this more rare. The information was just like any one of our magazines today and had topics of the latest fashions, recipes, stories, societal information, etc. Most of the time, the ladies would collect each issue and bind them in a yearly book.
