THE RIVERSIDE MAGAZINE FOR YOUNG PEOPLE. AN ILLUSTRATED MONTHLY. VOLUME III. 1869
by Horace Elisha Scudder
New York: Hurd and Houghton, 1870. Hard Cover. Very Good binding. A short lived children's periodical, The Riverside Magazine for Young People was published only between 1867 and 1870 when it was picked up by Scribner. Though recognized as "brilliant" Horace Scudder's creation failed because it was "A cold brilliance, of the sort that made it unlikely that the magazine could creat the sort of affection among its readers that St. Nicholas developed" [R. G. Kelly, Children's Periodicals of the United States; p. 369]. The bound volume of 12 issues, January through December 1869 contains a splendid full-page illustration of Street Musicians by Thomas Nast. Some edgewear to the title page; in green publisher's cloth, with all edges gilt. Very Good binding. (Inventory #: 274591)
