New York, New York:: Harper & Brothers,, 1888.. First printing. Original Wraps. Good. Single issue. Small quarto, 10 1/4" tall, pages 489 to 650 + ads, printed beige wraps. A good, clean sturdy issue overall with some darkening at the cover margins, minor shelf wear and light exterior soiling, chipping to the spine at the top and bottom edges (about 3" missing); internal binding solid, paper lightly yellowed. This is an original issue and includes all of the editorial material (articles, stories, poetry, etc.) as well as the advertisements and covers. Note: ''Harper's Magazine' began publication in 1850 and recreated the American magazine, serving as a promotional vehicle for Harper and Brothers books as well as the new 'literary' fiction and essay of the time, using sophisticated 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.
