THE CORNHILL MAGAZINE Vol. XVII. January to June, 1868.
London, Smith, Elder & Co. 1868, 1st edition, hb. Ill.: black-&-white illustrations. Thick 8vo, pp. vii, 760.
¶ "The Cornhill Magazine" was a Victorian magazine and literary journal named after Cornhill Street in London. It was founded in 1859 by George Murray Smith, the publisher, who hoped to attract readership from the popular "All The Year Round", a similar periodical owned by Charles Dickens. Its first editor was William Makepeace Thackeray (for more information see The John Murray Archive in the National Library of Scotland). Our offering is a complete bound volume for the first six months of 1868. It contains a short story by the famous G. A. Henty, one of his first appearances in print as the author of a "juvenile" or boys' story. It is unsigned and is entitled "Camp Life in Abyssinia" (Newbolt 206). Other noted authors whose works first appeared in "Cornhill" include Anthony Trollope, Elizabeth Gaskell, Arthur Conan Doyle, Alfred Tennyson, Henry James, George Eliot, Thomas Hardy, and Charlotte Bronte. Our offering contains an article by Matthew Arnold "Anarchy and Authority", and a serialised novelette by Charles Lever "The Bramleighs of Bishop's Folly", plus numerous other articles, and short stories. The entire volume is illustrated by a number of nicely-done engravings. The spine has been professionally re-backed, the leather still showing some early rubbing. The binding is tight and the contents are exceptionally clean. In very good overall condition.

[THE LONDON TIMES NEWSPAPER]
THE TIMES / ENGINEERING SUPPLEMENT [bound with] FINANCIAL AND COMMERCIAL SUPPLEMENT [bound with] EDUCATIONAL SUPPLEMENT
London, The Times Newspaper 1907 to 1911, hb. Folio size volume bound in 3/4 leather over dark "pebbled" cloth. folio
¶ A run of three different supplements (special issues) from the London Times. The Engineering Supplement runs from January 2, 1907 to October 2, 1907; the Financial and Commercial Supplement from January 7, 1907 to May 6, 1907, and the Educational Supplement from September 6, 1910 to December 5, 1911. The text is printed on newsprint stock, which has now browned a bit. The binding of this large, heavy, volume has been allowed in the past to dry, and hence the front joint is partially cracked and the boards show wear to extremities. The binding is still quite dry and must be handled with care. However, the contents are clean and unmarked. Given the ephemeral nature of such publications, it is quite unusual to find such an extensive run, and in such good condition (the binding notwithstanding). We would ask that, if a purchase is contemplated, you first enquire as to shipping costs and options for this heavy volume.
