About this Item

Collected issues of this monthly "literary journal," which actually served as a catchall also for general news and very various items of interest ? including letters and articles on natural history and voyages or travels; wedding, bankruptcy, and death notices; remarks on pictures, or on theatrical and musical performances; and assorted free-floating anecdotes and witticisms, as well as original poetry and reviews of contemporary publications. The contents are indexed; among the items of interest in this particular volume are a travelogue describing a journey along the Amazon and through Mexico, a letter to the editor regarding mistranslations of French words, a discussion of a Native American tribe allegedly of Welsh descent, and reviews of recently published works on history. This volume contains one plate, an oversized folding map of Austria. Provenance: From the collection of Joshua Gilpin, a Quaker from Philadelphia who established the first paper mill in Delaware, in 1787. 8vo (22.5 cm, 9"). [2], 676 (lacking 61/62, 589?92 incorrectly numbered 587?90) pp.; fold. map. Paper-covered boards, much worn and abraded, with covers detached and spine leather chipped and cracking; now contained in a simple acid-free phase box. Edges untrimmed and, in some instances, ragged. Sewing loosening with some leaves separated; varying degrees of browning with pages otherwise generally clean. Bookseller Inventory # 5130
