Éditeur : Norman L. Munro, Publisher, November 15, 1884 (volume 1 number 1)., New York
Date d'édition : 1884
Reliure : Soft cover
Small octavo, original decorated mustard cloth, stamped in black, gold and blind. The first issue of this semimonthly magazine which, to judge from the present scarcity of issues, was not terribly successful. Munro, like many other publishers of the time, published mountains of books in subscription series so as to take advantage of the lower postal rates for periodicals than for books. It's ironic that the present offering, whose content was indisputably magazine-like (a potpourri of fiction, poetry, nonfiction and editor's commentary), although it looked like a small book, should have fared poorly, as one would conclude from its present scarcity. This is the first issue we have seen. Institutional holdings are spotty: Yale has seven scattered issues, Cleveland Public Library, fifteen, Harvard and University of Minnesota, just one each. The journal lasted at least until October 1887 (the latest recorded date for an available issue). A "Publisher's Note" in this, the first issue of the magazine, sets forth its editorial philosophy. Printed on pulpy paper which is tanned, a very good copy overall. Scarce. (#116444). N° de réf. du libraire 116444
