HARPER'S MAGAZINE FOR 1892. HA
ARPER'S MAGAZINE, while ever true to its type—the original type of the popular illus
trated monthly—is conducted upon no stereotyped plan; its moula is broken every month, so that each Number is the NEW monthly magazine promised on its title-page.
While HARPER'S MAGAZINE will not fail to satisfy the desire of its readers for the best results of European literary and artistic culture, it will maintain its pre-eminently American character. As a strikingly appropriate celebration of the 400th anniversary of the Discovery of America, the publishers liave made special arrangements for a more thorough exposition than has hitherto been made of the Recent Unprecedented Development of our Country, and especially of the Great West.
Particular attention will also be given to Dramatic Episodes in American History, to such characters and incidents as make the Romance of our Past. Such subjects as seem to invite imaginative treatment, in the form of fiction, but with thorough fidelity to actual truth, will be 80 presented. The Whitchcraft Delusion in New England will thus furnish materials for both a play and a short story by MARY E. WILKINS. Certain features of French-Canadian Life, fifty years ago, will form the basis of a series of original habitant sketches, in true dialect, by Mr. WILLIAM McLENNAN, the new star in the Canadian literary galaxy, Other characters and events-notably those in the field of Adventure-will be set forth in their naked historic verity, and all will be effectively illustrated. Not the least important of these sketches will be two papers by Mr. JULIAN RALPH, depicting the romance of the Old Hudson's Bay Fur Company, illustrated by Mr. FREDERIC REMINGTON.
In view of the near possibility of a General European War, and of the certainty that the Danubian provinces will be the field of the next conflict, the publishers have provided for a series of illustrated articles which will be a popular exposition of both the Upper and the Lower Danube. These papers, the result of a special expedition undertaken for this purpose, will be contributed by Mr. POULTNEY BIGELOW and Mr. FRANK D, MILLET. The illustrations will be furnished by Mr. MILLET and Mr. ALFRED PARSONS.
Articles on the German, Austro-Hungarian, and Italian Armies, contributed by officers eminent in each service, will appear in the forthcoming volume, with illustrations by T. DE THULSTRUP. These will complete the series, of which there liave already appeared in the MAGAZINE articles on the United States, English, Russian and French armies.
Upon the completion of this series Mr. THEODORE CHILD will enter upon a graphic exposition of the Paris of To-day, giviug two papers on Literary Paris, illustrated by portraits, followed by two papers on Life in Paris, beautifully illustrated by RENOUARD and LEPÈRE.
In an early number will be begun a new novel by Mr. HOWELLS, entitled “A World of Chance, a story characteristically American and abounding in humorous and original situations. Especial prominence will be given to short stories, which will be contributed by THOMAS BAILEY ALDRICH; CONSTANCE FENIMORE WOOLSON; A. CONAN DOYLE, author of “Micah Clarke ;” RICHARD HARDING Davis ; MARGARET DELAND, author of “John Ward, Preacher;” THOMAS A. JANVIER; MARY E. WILKINS; Ruth McENERY STUART, and other popular writers.
Among the prominent literary features of the year will be new and interesting Personal Reminiscences of Nathaniel Hawthorne, contributed by HORATIO BRIDGE, U.S.N., his college classmate and lite-long friend; and an interesting Personal Memoir of the Brownings, by ANNE THACKEKAY RITCHIE, similar in quality and scope to this author's previous articles on Tennyson aud Ruskin.
HARPER'S YOUNG PEOPLE FOR 1892.
HE Thirteenth Volume of HARPER'S YOUNG PEOPLE, which begins with the number gained by its predecessors. No expense is spared to make this Prince of Weekly Periodicals for Young People attractive, and no effort is neglected that will tend to make it the best of its kind in the world.
The serial fiction of the new volume will begin with “Diego Pinzon," by John R. CORYELL, a sixteen-part story of the first voyage of Columbus and the discovery of America. It will be profusely illustrated by W. L. SHEPPARD. In February will begin the third of the famous Mates" series, by KIRK MUNROE. We have had “ Dory mates" and “Campmates." Now comes “Canoemates," a story of adventure on sea and land, amid Indians and wild beasts, with the Great Reef and the Everglades of Florida for a background. It will be illustrated by W. A. Rogers, himself a skilful canoeman and camper. The year's trio of long serials will be completed by one upon which one of the most popular American authors of the day is at present engaged. Besides these there will be stories of three or four parts by W. D. HOWELLS, E. H. HOUSE, Mary S. MCCOBB, ELLA RODMAN CHURCH, ANGELINE TEAL, and others.
Among the short story writers from whom frequent contributions may be expected are THOMAS NELSON Page, Capt. CHARLES KING, H. H. BOYESEN, MARY E. WILKINS, LUCY C. LILLIE, SOPHIE SWETT, and a host of others equally well known.
A variety of articles on Seasonable Sports will be contributed by experts, while games of all kinds, including those especially devised for amusement on long winter evenings, and Puzzles, will form attractive features.
