Toronto The Canadian Women's Magazine Publishing Co. 1920 First Edition Soft Cover Very Good- Magazine Folio Norman Price; 
62 pp. A magazine so large that it would not fit in the scanner bed, which is why the scan only shows a portion of the cover. General wear, the sort of wear that should be expected in a magazine of this age, although a small picture of winter sports has been removed from the centre of page 29 and somehow, the publisher managed to put the wrong page numbers on two pages - the numbering goes from 44 to 61 and 62, then back to 47 - clearly these two pages of full colour ads should have been numbered 45 and 46 - the ads, by the way, are for the Monarch Knitting Company and Monarch Yarns backed by Cowan's Cocoa. The actual pages 61 and 62 are also present. Anyway, as well as the great stories and articles, the list of which follows, there are also more interesting advertisements, including a full page colour oen for Columbia Grafonola featuring a painting by Gene Pressier, and another full page colour one for Colgate's Ribbon Dental Creme. Cover art by Norman Price. This issue contains: The Incorruptible Heart of Youth, an essay by Nellie McClung. Fiction: A Slip from the Code by Eric A. Darling, illustrated by O'Carter; Just Honeymoons by Rica McLean, illustrated by Frank Downey; As a Man Soweth by Mabel Burkholder, illustrated by E. J.
