Lombard, with some Spanish spice

The year 1933 was an intriguing one for Carole Lombard. While she hadn't quite gained complete traction as a film star, she continued to make advances as an actress. Her personal life was highlighted by a divorce from William Powell, though they remained friendly and even dated a few times after their split.

Early in the year, Feb. 5 to be precise, a magazine in Madrid, Spain, put Lombard on its cover:

Here's a closer look at the top and bottom of the cover:

Spanish isn't my primary foreign language, but I can make out enough to know the caption is commenting on Carole's rather flimsy, "see-through" outfit.

The magazine, Cronica, measures 15" x 11.5", with 28 pages. Bids begin at $9.99 -- no bids have been made as of this writing -- and bids close at 5:08 p.m. (Eastern) on Monday.
