    The Harmsworth Monthly Pictorial Magazine [v1 #5, November/December 1898] ed. Cecil Harmsworth (London: Harmsworth Brothers Ltd., 6d, 144pp)
    nb: a note in the issue says that the 6d price for this special Christmas number was a one time thing and that the following month will resume the regular price of 3½d. Since covers etc. are not bound in with the volume being indexed, I don’t know when the “regular” price apparently went up from the 3d implied by the opening editorial to have been the price of the first issue.
