A well-produced illustrated miscellany in the style of Century and Scribner’s. The content is miscellaneous, though with more emphasis on religion. The original series,”Brooklyn Magazine,” was founded by Edward Bok, who went on to revitalize the “Saturday Evening Post,” and Frederick L. Colver (this volume is a presentation copy of the manager, Colver). It was moved to New York by Standard Oil’s R. T. Bush and was a financial disaster.
