The Cosmopolitan. May through October, 1892.

Crane, Walter; Howard Pyle; Frederic Remington; etc. (illus).
New York. The Cosmopolitan Publishing Company. 1892.
Six monthly issues of the illustrated magazine, bound without covers or advertising; 9 1/4 x 6 1/2 inches; 768 pp. The bound volume lacks hard covers and the leather spine is missing. Numerous contemporary authors of fiction populate the pages (a number of pieces by Henry James); in addition, there are many interesting non-fiction articles. Titles of the latter include The Great Railway Systems of the United States (illustrated with full page map); Two Visits to the Lapps; Up the Ouachita on a Cotton Boat; New Mexican Folk Songs; Alligator Hunting with the Seminoles; The Great City Companies (i.e. London, with map); The Chicago [Democratic] Convention of 1892; etc. Much of Anglophile interest. An article discussing shoes and feet ("toes play a very important part in pedal locomotion") is illustrated by Daniel Carter Beard with a black and white image of Puss of "Puss and Boots" fame. A poem by James Russell Lowell ("The Nobler Lover") is illustrated by Walter Crane. Contents in good clean condition. Would merit shelf space if hidden behind other books. Item #52407
