About 40 years ago I found a printing company in rural upstate New York that had closed in the early 1960s, and I bought all the "over runs". Everything had been put away in wooden boxes and kept dry. The printing company specialized in producing wall calendars, and only printed with the old style "Stone-Litho Letterpress" system. These are 100% original to 1947-48 era, not modern copies.
These 12 prints are designed to be inserted into the 1948 Esquire Magazine's desk calendar. I am unable to make out the artists signature [It's not Varga]. IMPORTANT NOTE: Back in the late 1940s these were packed away exactly as they are offered today. It's a complete set of 1948 monthly calendar pages EXCEPT for July. To round out the 12 pages, someone added a different December 1948 page at the end. So you get 12 pin-up prints, but the last one doesn't match the other 11. Desk calendar assembly that holds these pages is not included, but they are easy to find as this was a common desk calendar size.
Price includes free shipping in the USA 48 states only.
My price is for all 12 pieces, that works out to only $3 per calendar page, including shipping. That's a very low price for original 1948 Esquire Magazine desk calendar prints. Please note that because of my cheap price, I am not able to accept lower offers. I can offer these on feebay and sell 'em all day long for more, but I hate how feebay treats long-time sellers!
