Title: Edison Sales Builder
Category: Commercial, Maxfield Parrish
Volume: 7
Issue: 10
Date: January 1921
Published in: Harrison, NJ
These issues of this exquisitely rare in-house publication of Edison Mazda Lamps contain cover illustration by Maxfield Parrish entitled “Primitive Man” and “Egypt” which were used on the 1921 and 1922 calendars. The magazines are devoted to hints on promoting bulb sales. Four later issue (4/26, 5/26, 4/27, 4/30) with Parrish cover illustrations are illuminated in the very useful and well-illustrated The Collectible Maxfield Parrish by William Holland and Douglas Congdon-Martin, Schiffer Publisher. 1993. It is reasonable to assume that issues with other Parrish cover illustrations were published as well. These issues are not in Appendix 3 of American Periodicals and and must be considered among the rarest of all Parrish magazine illustrations.
