VICK'S MONTHLY MAGAZINE, Volume XIII, 1890, and [Volume XIV, 1891]
James Vick Seedsman 1890 & [1891], Rochester, NY - Two octavo (5-1/4" x 8-1/4") volumes bound in dark green publisher's blindstamped cloth. Illustrated with 22 bright chromolithographs of flowers. The 1891 volume ends with the October issue and contains the final chromolithograph of the series. The October 1891 issue announced that beginning with the next issue Vick's Magazine would be enlarged to three columns a page and its price reduced to fifty cents a year. Henceforth, it would be published by the Vick Publishing Company, with the seed business to be conducted by James Vick's Sons. The new magazine would not be as "pretentious" as CENTURY, HARPER'S or SCRIBNER'S, "but in proportion to the price will contain fully as much matter." Two hundred thousand copies of the first issue were printed. The new magazine contained more literature on general topics than before, and gone were the beautiful color frontispieces. Slight fraying of outer edges of three plates in the second volume, which lacks its title page. Bright, clean copies inside and out. Fine [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
      [Bookseller: Charles Agvent, est. 1987, ABAA, ILAB]
