About this Item

[CHILDREN'S PERIODICAL: WOMAN EDITOR: 1854]. (GREENWOOD, Grace). THE LITTLE PILGRIM [Volume I through Volume III, (January 1854 through December, 1856); three complete volumes (each volume consisting of 12 separate monthly numbers), plus January 1854 "Supplement"]. Edited by Grace Greenwood [Pseudonym of Sarah J. Lippincott]. [Vol. I, plus supplement (1854), Vol. II (1855) and Vol. III (1856)-- each comprising 12 separate monthly numbers, for January-December, also including the January, 1854 8-page "Supplement"]. Folio, self-wrappers (rebound in early muslin-covered limp boards), yellow coated endpapers, pp. 8(January 1854 "Supplement"), 96; 96; 96, illustrated (by Devereux, Darley et al). Text prints multiple "original contributions," including "Rope-Walk" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, "Icebergs" (a poem) by Lydia H. Sigourney, "Barefoot Boy" by John Greenleaf Whittier and contributions by Hans Christian Anderson, James Wall, Katherine Gordon, Mary Howitt, Eliza L. Sproat, Lucy Larcom et al. An uncommon, early American children's periodical [no copy has appeared at auction since 1975 (per ABPC); OCLC locates only three(?) worldwide holdings for the first three volumes: Princeton, Strong Museum of Play, and American Antiquarian Society]. Sarah Jane (Clark) Lippincott (1823-1904) wrote largely under the pseudonym Grace Greenwood. She was a journalist (one of the first American women to become a professional newspaper correspondent), an abolitionist and woman's rights activist. "In 1853 she married Leander Lippincott and they began 'The Little Pilgrim,' one of the first American children's magazines"-- Blain. Feminist Companion to Literature in English, p. 458. According to a description of the Princeton University Library holding of this periodical, "[Sarah J. Lippincott] was fired from Godey's Lady's Book for her abolitionist views." Bound in early, crude (unprinted) muslin-covered paper boards, with moderate wear, front cover has a long vertical crease and tear to yellow coated endpaper on front pastedown. One leaf has moderate chip at fore-edge (causing loss to a few words on several lines of text (at fore-edge only), a number of pages of text have long tears at center folds of a few individual issues (causing slight loss to text in a few instances), else a good, complete and sound copy of the first three volumes of this early American juvenile periodical (including the scarce, January, 1854 (8-page) "Supplement," which was written almost entirely by Grace Greenwood). First edition (of volumes one through three) of an important American juvenile periodical (edited by a woman). Bookseller Inventory # 67436
