Brown Book of Boston

A women's magazine, and a good example of a 19th-century story paper on its way to become a 20th-century big slick. Although a monthly, it's in "weekly" format: large of size, saddle-stitched, pretty much exactly the same dimensions as later issues of The Saturday Evening Post and Collier's. Published a variety of fiction and articles, including some pieces by Ellis Parker Butler.
