"By Henry Mills Alden, forty years editor of Harper's Magazine. From the outlook of a half-century of close association with literature, Mr. Alden has been singularly able to discern the forces that have been at work during that period, and to bring them forward with a rare personal touch. That part of the book which relates to magazine writing is really an account of the important influence of periodicals upon general literature. 8vo. Cloth ...
