The Bay State Monthly — Volume 2, No. 6, March, 1885 eBook

This eBook from the Gutenberg Project consists of approximately 206 pages of information about The Bay State Monthly Volume 2, No. 6, March, 1885.

A strict regard for accuracy will guide the preparations of the illustrations, for which THE CENTURY has at its disposal a very large quantity of photographs, drawings, portraits, maps, plans, etc., hereto unused.  The aim is to present in this series, not official reports, but commanding officers’ accounts of their plans and operations,—­interesting personal experiences which will record leading events of the war, and possess, at the same time, a historical value not easily to be calculated.

FICTION.

In this line THE CENTURY will maintain its prestige, and furnish the best stories by American writers that can be procured.

MISCELLANEOUS FEATURES.

Under this heading may be included a series of papers on the Cities of Italy by W.D.  Howells, the illustrations being reproduction of etchings and drawings by Joseph Pennell; a series on the New North-West, being an interesting group of papers by E.V.  Smalley, Lieut.  Schwatka, Principal Grant (of Kingston, Ontario), and others, descriptive of little-known regions; papers on French and American art—­sculpture and painting, with some exquisite illustrations.

JOHN BURROUGHS

will write from time to time on outdoor subjects.
