A classy attempt at a monthly miscellany, well-illustrated with photographs and woodcuts, with prominent contributors such as Charles Summer and Horace Greeley, as well as extensive advertising. This is probably the first magazine to employ photography. It preades “Jubilee Days” (807), which claimed to be the first.
