The renowned New York Review of Books celebrates a 50th anniversary this month. It is remarkable for a severe essay and stellar intelligent illuminated stars — and a personal ads.

For example: “ANTEDILUVIAN MARINER (M) seeks appealing coxswain (F) to put in during terra firma amidst entrance torrents. Long-term attribute inevitable. Will drive transparent of Mount Ararat in criticism of Armenian genocide. Mont Blanc? Open to suggestions.”

The magazine’s associate publisher, Catherine Tice, tells NPR’s Scott Simon that she doesn’t know accurately what a logic was behind a preference to run personals. “But we do have a really initial personal ad, from a Jul 11, 1968, issue. It’s really succinct.” And it is: “Wife wanted: intelligent, beautiful, 18 to 25, broad-minded, sensitive, affectionate. For achieved artist and sparkling life. NYR box 1432.”

No word on either a achieved artist found his tolerant and sexual dream wife, though Tice says there have been some personal ad success stories. “We’ve been told of marriages and alliances of many kinds,” she says. One lady pronounced a responses to her ad “literally knocked my hosiery off.”

Tice says a ads simulate an intellectually intent and extraordinary readership. “[They're] meddlesome in politics and enlightenment certainly, and a humanities and science, and arrange of unabashedly happy to state that they wish to share those things with others,” along with descriptions of their looks. “If an armchair radical who’s 25 seeks dialectical singularity with street-credible jacobin female, contingency have zero to remove though chains, deficiency of skill a and — we consternation who will greatfully that fellow, though we suppose that there’s a reader of The Review who will.”

A Few Of Catherine Tice’s Favorites

ONE-BREASTED WOMAN seeks one-armed man.

FRISKY COUGAR, 84, seeks dude, 72 to 76, share walks from parking lots to doctors’ offices. Must like minute descriptions of illnesses; suffer matinee “naps”; daytime pushing essential; relishes grandchildren’s pictures. Limited flatulence, clacking teeth ok. Don’t expect LTR.

PORTLY, HANDSOME MAN, 81 summers, some hair and teeth, plenty supply blue pills; seeking 90+ sexy cougar, to graze underneath afghan, barter podiatry, colonoscopy, and dental stories; meaningful “Hut-sut rawlson” and “Mairzy
 Doats” a plus. Large form for response.

SQUALID SYDNEY WOMBAT (M), distinguished healthy unwashed digger seeks beckoning, sexy NYC squirrel (F) for trans-Antipodean roo, bold exchanges, and postmodern “Murdoch-She-Wrote” contemplations of retrospectives in prohibited steel prints.

WORN-OUT HUSBAND, crony to his wife’s nerves and father to 5 stupid daughters (the dual eldest excepted) for roughly a entertain century, seeks wealthy, titled, childless widow of an unentailed estate for prolonged walks opposite ha-ha’s.

FANNIE MAE with uneasy assets, wearied with Freddie Mac, seeks well-regulated impulse package from counterparty too large to fail. No money for clunkers.

DISPROPORTIONATELY BLESSED GENERALISSMO, deposed by an ungrateful peasantry, languishes in lush pleasant exile. Seeks a gifted contortionist with low ethics and high pain threshold for long-term relationship, satori, and maybe a small narco-crime on a side.
