Richmond, Virginia: The Magazine, 1923. Stapled Pamphlet. No less than 22 issues of the uncommon Richmond literary magazine, The Reviewer -- all of the first 12 bi-weekly issues of Volume I (Numbers 1-12; February 15 through August 1, 1921); all of the six monthy issues of Volume II (October 1921 - March, 1922); four issues from Volume III -- April 1922, May, 1922, June, 1922 and October, 1922. The Reviewer ran for four years, from 1921 to 1924. Altogether there were thirty-five issues. Here are the first 21 issues, plus an additional issue from Volume III. ~~The first six months feature Virginia writers entirely -- Mary Johnston, Mary Wingfield Scott. Mary Newton Stanard, Ellen Glasgow, Amelie Rives, James Branch Cabell, etc. Cabell was a guest editor in 1921 and set the tone for magazine: "The payment for such MSS. as may be found available will be in fame not specie". This policy continued. As the magazine expanded its range beyond Virginia to include authors like John Galsworthy, Julia Peterkin, Gertrude Stein, Carl Van Vechten and H. L. Mencken, no payment or royalty to them was ever made. Well, as Cabell opined, they were of course "paid in fame no specie".~~This gathering of 22 issues is far and away the most significant collection of this significant little Virginia magazine that we have seen. ~~Some stains, and some staples rusted, but all holding together well. All in printed wrappers; one or two with minor loss.~.
