About this Item

Single issue, Small quarto, 10" tall, pages 177 to 336 + 48 ads, stiff illustrated wraps. A very good, clean, sturdy soft cover magazine with minor shelf wear and rubbing, light exterior surface soiling to the cover, chipping at top and bottom of spine; internal binding solid, paper clean and lightly yellowed. This is an original copy with all of the editorial material and advertisements. Including Howells 'Rise of Silas Lapham,' part IX,' James' 'The Bostonians' part VI,' and Hatton "In North Borneo' . Note: 'The Century Magazine' was retitled from the earlier 'Scribner's Monthly' (thus the 'New Series' title statement) in 1881, with new management, under the editorship of the great Richard Watson Gilder, carrying forward its high standards for illustration and the best authors. Subject matters range from art, fiction, and poetry to history and science. As such it makes a terrific read as an anthology of its moment in time. Bookseller Inventory # 27404

Store Description

After thirty years, our Newbury Street shop in Boston has closed and our stock is now available only on-line. Our efforts have always been directed toward good reading copies, but we still have a large selection of first editions and scarce titles. We continue to specialize in all areas of fiction, giving added attention to science fiction and mystery. Our largest non-fiction selection is in history, with emphasis on America and Britain. Though we have always been a general bookseller, with over 250 subject categories to chose from, we maintain strong departments in biography, poetry, drama, essay and music as well.
