Bibelot

Total Issues: 21

Subtitled "A Reprint of Poetry and Prose for Book Lovers", this was an annual magazine or anthology, consisting entirely of reprint material, that appeared from 1895 through 1914 (the 21st volume is an Index with testimonials). Much of the content is verse, often large assemblages of short poems, but there is also a sprinkling of fiction, a short editorial in each volume, and a lot of essays.
