Description Color offset lithograph on one sheet of white paper folded. Magazine clipping from Cosmopolitan featuring the story "Tales of Six Cities: II Sanctuary in Paris" by Paul Gallico with illustrations by John Falter. The front page is an article. The centerfold features an illustration of circus performers lined up against a tent wall. At the end of the line in the middle is a clown dressed as a hobo with large feet. Next to the clown is a woman with dark hair, dressed in short shorts and a brassiere. Next to the woman is a tall man with a stern expression on his face, dressed in a red guard's uniform. Facing the performers are police officers, holding nightsticks. One of the police officers is pacing along the bottom of the illustration. Facing the line against the wall are two men in long coats and bowler hats. On the left is a doorway with a police officer peering in, holding back a curtain. Below the illustration reads: "Tales of Six Cities" in rust-colored, cursive letters. There is a drawing of a globe on the lower right, and below the cursive letters reads "II: SANCTUARY IN PARIS" in black block letters. Along the top edge is the headline: "VIENNA * PRAGUE * LONDON * PARIS * BERLIN * ROME". The author's name is printed on the right. Down the right edge is story text.
