There are no institutional holdings of this 8 page illustrated monthly, which evolved into McCall’s. In fact, all of the major references are unclear and inaccurate as to the initial date of publication, size or even the exact title. This is likely the only copy known and clarifies the question of this magazine’s origin. The title of this important long-running ladies magazine McCall’s unfortunately died recently after changing its name to Rosie, which then folded due to editorial dispute.
