Occasional light foxing, but a lovely copy overall. This volume contains a full year of Peterson's Magazine, a successful rival of Godey's Lady's Book; not only was it a lady's magazine, but thoroughly and consciously American. It was produced by American authors for American women. This volume contains a complete novel, which was published in twelve monthly installments, "The Soldier's Orphans," by Mrs. Ann S. Stephens. Stephens was immensely popular in the mid nineteenth century and wrote exclusively for Peterson's Magazine; one of her stories, Malaeska, was reprinted in 1860 as the first Beadle Dime Novel. It also contains two short stories by Louise Chandler Moulton, "The Second Wife's Story" and "Nora." (Sterm, We the Women). .

FASHION - WOMEN'S - PERIODICAL
Petit Messager Des Modes Et le Confident Reunis
1847. [FASHION - WOMEN'S - PERIODICAL] LE PETIT MESSAGER DES MODES ET LE CONFIDENT REUNIS: TOME VII, NOS. 1-17, 22-24; TOME IX, NOS. 1-13, 15-17. Paris: Imprim. Schneider et Langrand, 1847 and 1849. Thirty-six issues illustrated with 72 lovely hand-colored engraved plates, of which 33 are by Heloise Leloir and 12 by Laure Colin Noel. Quarto. Text: 2,7-136,169-192; 104,113-128,121-128 pp. 10 1/4 by 7 in. Nineteenth-century binding: quarter black morocco, marbled boards, gilt title on spine, marbled endpapers. The binding is shelfworn, with top joint is starting and lower joint tender. The first issue is missing four text pages; otherwise, despite some misleading errors in pagination, all text is present. Most issues have a timbre royal mark (a French duty stamp) on one text page (but not on the plates). The plates are generally clean and fresh; however, there are a few exceptions: 1. - Both plates in Vol. VII, no. 1, have old paper repairs on the inner margin, and the top fore-corner of one has been clipped; 2. - The two plates in Vol. VII, no. 2, have been trimmed 1/4" shy of the fore-edge of the bookblock; 3. - One plate in Vol. IX, no. 15, which is the only horizontal image in the entire volume, has been trimmed to the top-edge of the image at the fore-edge. LE PETIT MESSAGER DES MODES was a bi-weekly publication, appearing on the 1st and 16th of each month, comprised of eight pages of text, that was to include 22 engraved plates and 3 large patterns in each six-month period. This volume is bound without any of the large patterns and, instead, an additional plate has been inserted wherever a pattern is called for. These `extra' plates have been supplied from issues that are not included in this volume. Although most issues are complete with text and appropriate plates together, there are twelve instances in this volume, including the plates-for-patterns substitutions, of plates being misbound or of a plate from another issue replacing the expected plate. And so, while the plates are lovely and in very good condition, it is for these reasons that the volume is offered as is. .
