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.
In this line THE CENTURY will maintain its prestige, and furnish the best stories by American writers that can be procured.
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.
will write from time to time on outdoor subjects.
Readers of THE CENTURY may feel sure of keeping abreast of the times on leading subjects that may properly come within the province of a monthly magazine. Its circulation is now about 140,000 monthly, the November number exceeding that figure. Subscriptions should date from this number, beginning the War Series and Mr. Howell’s Novel. Price $4.00 a year, 35 cents a number. All book-sellers and news-dealers sell it and take subscriptions, or remittance may be made to the publishers.
