Quick Reference


semi-monthly little magazine, was founded at Cambridge as a house organ of the publishers Stone and Kimball. Moved with the firm to Chicago after six months, it had already become a separate publication, printing works by Henry James, Hamlin Garland, Eugene Field, Bliss Carman, and Julian Hawthorne, in addition to contributions from such foreign authors as Wells, Beerbohm, Stevenson, Henley, and Yeats. In typography, illustrations, and literary content, the magazine was faintly suggestive of the English fin de siècle publications, and in its turn affected The Lark and other American periodicals. It was increased in size (1897) and later lost much of its charm and naïveté.

Subjects: Literature.
