Residence for Cyrus Curtis, Camden, NJ
Albert W. Dilks, architect(s). From the American Architect and Building News, September 29, 1888. 13.25 by 8.75 inches. VG+.
Hand-colored Original Plan. The Ladies' Home Journal is a magazine which first appeared on February 16, 1883, as a women's supplement to the Tribune and Farmer, published by Cyrus H. Curtis. It arose from a popular "women's column" written by his wife, Louisa Knapp.[1] The following year it became an independent publication. Its original name was The Ladies Home Journal and Practical Housekeeper, but it dropped the last three words in 1886.[2] It rapidly became the leading magazine of its type, reaching a circulation of more than one million copies in ten years.[3] It was published by the Curtis Publishing Company and edited by Louisa Knapp, until she was succeeded by Edward William Bok in 1889. In 1892, it became the first magazine to refuse patent medicine ads.[4] At the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, the magazine published the work of social reformers and muckrakers like Jane Addams. One of the magazine's most popular and enduring features is "Can This Marriage Be Saved?", in which each half of a couple in a troubled marriage explains the problem, and a marriage counselor explains the solutions offered in counseling and the outcome.[ This picture is extremely hard to find, as the American Architect and Building News not only had a very small circulation during that time, but very few were actually preserved or colored as this has been. It measures 13.25 by 8.75 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole plan measures 15.5 by 11.5 inches (with mat border). Finely detailed and beautifully hand-colored. Shrink wrapped. Plan is in VG+ condition with light browning along the edges and some light crinkling.
