About this Item

Yellow printed wraps. A single issue of this little magazine from the turn of the century, featuring essays and philosophical/literary musings on culture, society, art and literature, as well as short aphorisms and sayings throughout. Perhaps of note is a biographical essay by Marilla Ricker on Robert G. Ingersoll, reflecting on his agnosticism and skill as an orator, as well as his advocacy for freethought. Marilla M. Ricker was the first woman admitted to the NH bar as well as being admitted to the bar in Washington DC in 1882. She pushed for prison reform, and worked free of charge for many of her clients. Ricker was also a strong advocate for women's suffrage, being the first woman to attempt to vote in New Hampshire, arguing that she had a right to do so as a property owner in Dover, NH. She also was a key figure in the freethought movement. Founded by Hubbard after his 'bitter experience with the New England intellectual and literary elite,' the Philistine was at first intended as a 'one-off jibe at the establishment.' (MacLeod: American Little Magazines of the 1890s). Published through the Roycrofters community in New York, the magazine eventually became a vehicle for Hubbard to express his political and cultural views, while incorporating the Arts and Crafts aesthetic popular at the time, into printing and layout. GOOD condition. Some chipping, minor tearing and loss along the extremities. General browning to the wraps. Moderate foxing to the wraps. Alphanumerical notation in pencil to the first page.
