This is the first issue of a wonderful magazine about books, collecting, and other assorted topics pertaining to the written word. Every issue was bound in hard cover which doesn't happen too often. There's a lot about this issue to like because it's the first and retains both the notice that almost all of the 2000 subscriptions had been sold and the publisher's card (that looks like the magazine cover) which could be used to subscribe. There are also two articles in this premier issue written by famous authors: H.L. Menken "On Breaking Into Type" and Sherwood Anderson "On Being Published". Other stories cover colophons, firsts, issues and points; Whitman and the war's finale; Illustrating Huckleberry Finn; Irving Washington and an episode in courtesy; an unrecorded Pilgrim's Progress; the bookplates of Bruce Rogers; and William McFee on Getting Into Print. Magazine measures 8-3/4" x 11" and is very clean, though boards have toned with age and the outer corner of both boards shows a flat crease. No foxing inside and no names or writing. A lovely collectible. Other issues available here. Just type in the title to see them.
